Kompany expects 'wave' of red cards

Published Add your comment

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has predicted an "unprecedented wave" of red cards in the wake of his dismissal against Manchester United on Sunday.

Kompany begins a four-match ban by missing City's Carling Cup semi-final first-leg encounter with Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium tonight after an FA disciplinary panel rejected his appeal. Manager Roberto Mancini had already claimed he had never seen anyone get sent off in similar circumstances in 30 years in the game.

"I appealed because I obviously completely disagreed with the interpretation of the officials on the day but that happens in football and we move on," Kompany said on his Facebook page.
