Man United star Ashley Young will be suspended for three matches after elbowing Southampton’s Dusan Tadic in Saturday’s goalless draw at Old Trafford.
Ashley Young acknowledged the FA charge of rough lead however challenged the length of the boycott and was unsuccessful.
It implies the United wing-back will miss their visit to Everton on New Year’s Day, the home FA Cup third-round tie with Derby County on Friday night and their home Premier League game with Stoke City on January 15.
Halfway during that time half of United’s clash with Saints, Young had a fight with Tadic.
As Southampton took a corner, Young apparently made contact with the forward in what gave off an impression of being a think elbow to the waist.
Neither the ref, Craig Pawson or his assistance grabbed on the episode at the time, which implies the United full-back has been slap with a retrospective ban.
The England international has influenced the wing back position his own this to season, keeping the semblance of Luke Shaw out of the side before moving over to right side hand side to cover for the injured Antonio Valencia.
He has inspired with the two goals contribution and his hell bent in defending and has turned out to be one of Jose Mourinho’s most useful players this term.
With United enduring something of injury crisis in advance, the last thing Mourinho needs is to lose a starter in his back-line.
