UEFA takes action against Manchester United for Media misdemeanours

March 7, 2013

Uefa has begun disciplinary proceedings against Manchester United following their Champions League defeat by Real Madrid on Tuesday.

European football’s governing body is taking action over Nani’s red card and the “non-fulfillment of post-match media obligations” at Old Trafford.

Nani was sent off by Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir in the 56th minute for a high challenge on Alvaro Arbeloa. United went on to lose the tie 3-2 on aggregate.

Nani’s red card is subject to a disciplinary review which will decide whether the automatic one-match ban should be extended.  In addition, the Manchester United players walked through the “flash zone” – an area where the waiting media can talk to players – without the required minimum of two stopping. Fines are the most likely sanctions for the media misdemeanors.

Uefa says its disciplinary panel will judge the case on 21 March, and a spokesman added: “There are no issues for us regarding the sending off.”
