Sport Champions League: UEFA confirm Rashford ban for Man Utd’s next match

Published:

UEFA have handed a one-match ban to Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford, in the Champions League.

Rashford will now miss the Red Devils’ trip to Galatasaray next week.

The England international was shown a red card as United lost 4-3 to FC Copenhagen earlier this month. Referee Donatas Rumsas was called to review the footage on the pitchside monitor by VAR before dismissing Rashford for a foul on Elia Jelert.

That defeat has put Erik ten Hag’s men on the verge of crashing out of the Champions League group stages.

After the game, Ten Hag said: “The red card changed everything.

“We then conceded two goals before half-time that should never have counted – the first was offside, their player stood in front of André Onana, and the penalty [for the second] was very debatable.
