As reported by the Chronicle, Newcastle United playmaker Jonjo Shelvey has pleaded not guilty and requested a personal hearing in regards to his FA charge of misconduct.
Shelvey has requested a personal hearing after being accused of allegedly using abusive or insulting language to an opponent, during the team’s 2-0 home defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers on September 17.
Now for the news that we all want to hear, as fans of the club. Shelvey should be available for selection against Leeds United on Sunday, as his personal hearing is unlikely to be held until next week at the earliest.
Shelvey’s plea of not guilty indicates that he does not feel that he used the alleged terminology, which was believed to be aimed towards Romain Saiss, Wolves’ Moroccan midfielder and it is believed that Shelvey has a witness who corroborates his evidence.
