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.
