Soccer-Man Utd win appeal against Wan-Bissaka's Champions League ban


(Reuters) - Right back Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be available for Manchester United's Champions League clash against Atalanta next week after the club won an appeal against his two-match ban on Friday.

Wan-Bissaka was shown a straight red card in the defeat against Young Boys in September, with UEFA initially handing him a one-game ban. The punishment was later doubled after his action was deemed as "rough play".

United said that UEFA had amended the original ban to just one game, meaning Wan-Bissaka is free to face Atalanta on Oct. 20 after having missed the second group game against Villarreal.

United are third in Group F with three points from two games.
