The Football Association has rejected Manchester City’s appeal against Vincent Kompany’s red card in the 3-2 FA Cup defeat by Manchester United.

The defender, 25, will serve a four-match ban immediately for his two-footed tackle on Nani.

An FA statement said: “The suspension consists of a statutory three-match suspension for serious foul play plus one additional game given this is Kompany’s second dismissal of the season.”


Whilst some had felt that the red card handed to the City captain was harsh it was seemingly a sending off that was in keeping with the letter of the law. Even though Kompany didn’t make contact with Nani he was deemed to have gone in two footed on the Man United man.

The Man City man will miss the two legs of the Carling Cup semi-final with Liverpool as well as Premier League fixtures with Wigan and Tottenham.
