FA uphold bans for Man Utd Duo

Recommended Posts

Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes have had their Amsterdam Tournament bans upheld by The Football Association.

 

The Manchester United duo were both sent off in the pre-season friendly game against Porto on August 4.

 

While The Red Devils had hoped the decisions would be overturned on appeal, The FA have now dismissed those claims of wrongful dismissal.

 

Both players were withdrawn from the second game of the competition at the Amsterdam ArenA, but Rooney's dismissal for violent conduct and Scholes' red card for serious foul play now means they must serve a three-match ban.

 

They are now set to miss the Premiership games at Charlton Athletic on August 23, at Watford on August 26 and Tottenham Hotspur at home on September 9.

 

:lol:

Could have done with them playing against Tottenham, to be honest.

Rooney being banned can only be good for the other teams in the division.

 

I'm not going to harp on about how harsh it was - Man Utd can falter as a result of it so i'm not complaining.... :lol:

Do you think Spurs are really as good as the media would have us believe?
