Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas will reportedly escape action from the FA following his comments regarding their decision not to punish Fernando Torres for scratching.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas will reportedly face no action from the Football Association for blasting their decision to leave Fernando Torres unpunished for scratching the face of Jan Vertonghen.

A three-man FA panel decided that no further action would be taken against the Spaniard, who will serve a one-match ban after getting sent off following a second bookable offence during the 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Following the ruling, Villas-Boas branded the decision a "disgrace", but the FA will not punish the Portuguese coach for his comments, according to the Irish Independent.

While Torres is suspended for one game, the former Liverpool forward is expected to be out for three weeks with a knee ligament injury.
