UEFA have made decision on Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s Champions League suspension

Aaron Wan-Bissaka will miss Manchester United’s trip to Atalanta as well as Wednesday night’s fixture with Villarreal after UEFA decided to extend his suspension.

The right back was sent off against Young Boys on matchday one, costing United a position of strength after his side had taken the lead through Cristiano Ronaldo, only for the Swiss side to eventually seal a shock comeback win in stoppage time.

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team preparing to face last season’s Europa League final opponents Villarreal on Wednesday, UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body announced Wan-Bissaka’s suspension had been extended for ‘rough play’ in the previous gameweek.

In his absence, Diogo Dalot will likely be given a chance at right back in United’s next two Champions League games.

The news comes a day after Kevin De Bruyne, playing for United’s local rivals Manchester City, avoided a red card for a similarly robust challenge on Paris Saint-Germain’s Idrissa Gueye during the French side’s 2-0 victory.

While United knew Wan-Bissaka would be absent this week, his extended ban is another blow for a side looking to put their poor start in Europe behind them. A number of important squad members are also currently sidelined through injury.
