The extension of the European ban on Manchester United’s defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka is to two matches for his red card against Young Boys in the Champions League by a UEFA disciplinary panel.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card in the 35th minute of his side’s shock loss earlier this month after
a foul on Christopher Martins Pereira.
UEFA confirmed the news of Wan-Bissaka’s punishment on Wednesday morning, following the incident during
the game in Bern earlier this month.
The full-back’s mandatory one-match ban increases for ‘rough play’, meaning he will miss
Wednesday night’s game against Villarreal and next month’s home clash with Atlanta.
Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw are also missing following their injuries in United’s 1-0 loss to Aston Villa at
Left-back Alex Telles has just returned from injury but will most certainly get thrown in the deep end for
the game to help fill the gaps in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s defense.
The additional punishment means Wan-Bissaka is forced to miss the home game with Atalanta on 20 October.
Of course, he also misses the tie with Villarreal at Old Trafford this evening (Wednesday), which kicks off at 20:00 BST.
