Football Association rejects Nemanja Vidic appeal

The FA rejects Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic's red card appeal.

The Football Association has rejected Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic's red card appeal following his sending-off against Chelsea on Sunday.

The defender was shown a straight red card for his challenge on Eden Hazard towards the end of United's 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.

Vidic will now serve a three-match ban after an Independent Regulatory Commission found him guilty of serious foul play.

The Serbian will be available for selection again on February 9 when the Red Devils host Fulham in the Premier League.
