Manchester United released a statement on its website on Friday, October 15th, 2021. The statement confirmed the decision taken by UEFA.
He was suspended for two games because of a rough game. The Red Devils did not agree with the decision taken by the European body.
The appeal lodged by Manchester United has been upheld. Consequently, the UEFA Control Ethics and Disciplinary Body's decision of 23 September 2021 is amended as follows:
To suspend Manchester United player, Mr Aaron Wan-Bissaka, for the next one (1) UEFA club competition match for which he would be otherwise eligible, for rough play.
The defender missed the game against Villareal on matchday 2 at Old Trafford, this means he will be available for selection in the game against Atalanta.
