Kompany's red card rescinded
PREMIER LEAGUE:Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has won his appeal for wrongful dismissal in Sunday’s league win at Arsenal.
The Belgian was shown a straight red card by referee Mike Dean in the 75th minute for what was deemed a two-footed lunge on Jack Wilshire.
“We can officially confirm that Vincent Kompany’s red card against Arsenal has been overturned,” City said on their Twitter feed yesterday.
The FA confirmed the decision made by an Independent Regulatory Commission. “Kompany’s three-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect,” the governing body said.
