Aaron Wan-Bissaka will miss Manchester United’s next two Champions League fixtures after his initial one-match ban was increased to two games for "rough play".
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side found themselves down to 10 men after 35 minutes in the shock 2-1 defeat to Young Boys a fortnight ago, after Wan-Bissaka’s challenge on Christopher Martins Pereira led to the 23-year-old being shown a straight red card.
UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary body said Wan-Bissaka would be suspended "for the next two UEFA club competition matches... for rough play".
