Taylor Receives FA Reminder

The FA has issued a reminder to Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor following a post he made to Twitter

The FA has issued a reminder to Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor in respect of the public nature of social networking websites, and the risk of postings being taken out of context, following a post he made to Twitter of four pictures on Friday, 15th November.

Taylor has confirmed to The FA that the four pictures he posted on his Twitter account were sent to him by Massadio Haidara. This has also been confirmed by Haidara.

One picture was of Haidara himself, one was of Vurnon Anita, and the other two were selected by Haidara as "lookalikes" of Papiss Cisse and Moussa Sissoko. All four are players at Newcastle United.

Taylor posted these pictures on his Twitter account as a response to those teammates laughing at his efforts to learn French. This followed a picture posted earlier by Haidara, apparently of Taylor learning French.

In these circumstances, The FA will take no further disciplinary action in respect of this matter.
