FA fails to rescind Luiz’s red card

by Koolkola

The English FA has insisted that David Luiz’s red card against Wolves will stand despite appeal from the club.

He will now miss the match away at Aston Villa tomorrow. Replays of the incident with Willian Jose shows that there was minimal contact, one initiated by the Wolves forward.

Arsenal released the following statement:

 

“The Football Association have confirmed to us that the red card given to David Luiz on Tuesday against Wolverhampton Wanderers will stand.

“We have worked really hard to overturn David Luiz’s red card. We presented our case to the FA but are disappointed that our appeal has been unsuccessful.

“We accept the FA’s decision and continue our preparations for Saturday’s match against Aston Villa.”

On the same night that Luiz was sent off, Southampton’s Jan Bednarek suffered a similar double-jeopardy moment at Old Trafford. The Pole conceded a penalty and was sent off in the closing stages of a 9-0 defeat.

 

The FA have confirmed his red card has been overturned. Go figure.
