Barcelona Star Cleared To Play In Champions League Final After Rascism Allegations

Nou Camp hero will face Old Trafford rivals at Wembley.

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets is free to play Manchester United in the Champions League final after Uefa cleared him of racial abuse allegations.

The 22-year-old was accused by Real Madrid of aiming racist insults towards Marcelo during the semi-final first-leg between the two sides last month.

Uefa opened a disciplinary case against the Spain international and if found guilty would certainly have been banned from playing in the final at Wembley.

But the governing body dismissed the allegations against him meaning Busquets is now clear to face Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.

“Sergio Busquets will be able to play in the Champions League final,” read a Barcelona statement.

“UEFA has informed FC Barcelona that it rejected the complaint filed by Real Madrid.”
