Manchester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has revealed he decided not to appeal against Martin Petrov´s red card because of what happened to Jeremie Aliadiere.

Petrov will serve a three-match suspension after kicking out at Leon Osman during Monday´s defeat to Everton and, although Eriksson claimed the Bulgarian had been harshly treated, he has let the matter rest after Aliadiere´s ban was increased from three matches to four after he slapped Liverpool´s Javier Mascherano.

Eriksson said: "It is probably better not to appeal as that was a strange decision."
