UEFA extends Man Utd star, Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s Champions League ban

Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been given a two-game Champions League ban by UEFA.

Wan-Bissaka was sent off in the 35th minute of Man United’s Champions League 2-1 defeat to Young Boys for a foul on Christopher Martins Pereira earlier this month.

The mandatory one-match suspension has been doubled due to the decision to regard the offence as “rough play”.

The additional punishment means Wan-Bissaka is now forced to miss Man United’s Champions League home game against Atalanta on 20 October.

The right-back will also miss Man United’s tie with Villarreal at Old Trafford tonight.

Man United disclosed this in a post via their website on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Man United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, will be without Harry Maguire due to injury against Villarreal on Wednesday night.
