Watch: Man Utd’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka gets sent off for a reckless challenge
Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card during Manchester United‘s Champions League group stage game against BSC Young Boys.
Despite being knocked out at the group stage last season, United are regarded as one of the favourites to win the competition in 2022.
They got off to a brilliant start as Bruno Fernandes picked out Cristiano Ronaldo with a brilliant pass and the forward made no mistake in front of goal.
United were in a comfortable position until the 35th minute when Wan-Bissaka lost the ball and then lunged forward in an attempt to regain possession. The 23-year-old mistimed the tackle and left the referee with no choice but to brandish a red card.
He previously received a red card against Liverpool during his time at Crystal Palace but this is the first red card of his United career. The full-back is also the first United player to be sent off in a Champions League game since Nani against Real Madrid in March 2013.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer then reacted by taking off Jadon Sancho and replacing him with Diogo Dalot.
🚨 | RED CARD: Wan Bissaka has been sent off.
Ole is forced to sacrifice Sancho for Dalot.
