UEFA will not change their rules on yellow cards for the Champions League for at least three years despite six players being suspended for the Chelsea v Bayern Munich final after being cautioned in the semi-finals.
European football's governing body have already rejected a plea for clemency from the international players' union FIFPro for the six players - three from each club - and have now stated there will be no change until at least after 2015.
Michael van Praag, the Dutch UEFA executive committee member who is head of the body's Champions League Rules group, was quoted on FIFPro's website saying: "We have just had three sessions with representatives of the European Clubs' Association and others, in which we confirmed the rule for the coming three years."
