Manchester United FC news: Ashley Young to serve three match ban after accepting violent conduct charge

Ashley Young accepted a Football Association violent conduct charge

Sunday, December 31, 2017

Ashley Young will miss Manchester United’s next three matches after accepting a violent conduct charge.

Young was issued with the charge by the Football Association after appearing to elbow Dusan Tadic during the 0-0 draw with Southampton on Saturday.

He has decided not to contest it, but did argue a suspension and a Football Association spokesperson said: “Ashley Young will be suspended for Manchester United’s next three matches.

“He accepted a violent conduct charge following an off-the-ball incident during yesterday’s game against Southampton, but argued the suspension was excessive. This was rejected by a Regulatory Commission.”

The 32-year-old wing-back will miss the New Year’s Day match at Everton plus home games with Derby (FA Cup) and Stoke.
