Following the disgraceful decision to send Darren Fletcher off for winning the ball against Cesc Fabregas, we were told the only way Fletcher could get off with it was if there had been a case of mistaken identity, which there clearly hadn’t.
The Uefa general secretary, David Taylor, has today given United some hope though, suggesting that the case should be referred to UEFA’s disciplinary body for review.
“The likelihood is we’d refer it to our disciplinary body,” he said. “They’d look to see if there were any special circumstances to justify any departure from established procedures.”
Fingers crossed for Fletch!
