Champions League: Man Utd to appeal Wan-Bissaka’s red card

Manchester United have confirmed they will be appealing Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s red card suspension.

Wan-Bissaka was sent off after only 35 minutes in United’s Champions League group stage opener against Young Boys.

The right-back stretched for a loose ball and stamped on the foot of Christopher Martins in the process.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men went on to lose the game 2-1.

They have now been dealt a double blow following UEFA’s plans to uphold the decision, meaning the player will miss two matches.

Speaking during a press conference, Solskjaer expressed his disappointment with the decision and maintained that United would “of course” be appealing.

He outlined that United would be armed with a prime example as to why the decision shouldn’t be applied and will cite midfielder of rivals Man City Kevin De Bruyne as a reason.

During Wednesday night’s Champions League tie with PSG, De Bruyne went in late on Idrissa Gueye and left the midfielder writhing in pain, only to receive a yellow card.

Solskjaer said: “I’m very surprised, very disappointed. Of course, we’re going to appeal.

“It’s almost a three-game ban because it’s early in the game, 30 minutes, so it’s two-thirds of another game, and if you look at other tackles from the other side of the city as well, that’s probably more dangerous, and that’s a yellow card, that’s inconsistency, that’s football for us.”
