UEFA have begun disciplinary proceedings against Manchester United following their actions after their 2-1 Champions League defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday night, according to BBC Sport.

European football's governing body are apparently taking action over Nani's red card and also the fact that they did not meet media obligations after the game.

The Portuguese winger was sent off in the second half when United were firmly in control of the tie, but after kicking Arbeloa in the ribs, the tie changed as he was sent off much to the annoyance of the home fans and United's players and manager.

After the red card, Madrid went on to score twice and eventually win the tie 3-2 on aggregate and progessed to the Quarter Finals.

The dismissal of Nani will automatically be reviewed by UEFA as is every red card that is given out and they will then decide how long the United winger should be suspended for.

UEFA could also discipline United for not talking to the media after the game. 

Manager, Sir Alex Ferguson was apparently to distraught to face the media and instead he sent assistant, Mike Phelan to deal with all the reporters and to face the media.

As well as Ferguson refusing to talk, all the Manchester United players walked past the reporters without talking and without making any comments, after they were apparently told to ignore all journalists and questions.

Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand might also face action after he sarcastically clapped in the face of match official, Cuneyt Cakir after the full-time whistles was blown.
