Sunderland lose appeal

- AFP, LONDON

Apr 14, 2017-

Sunderland have failed in their bid to overturn the red card shown to Swedish midfielder Sebastian Larsson during last weekend’s defeat against Manchester United. Larsson was sent off by referee Craig Pawson after a foul on United’s Ander Herrera late in the first half of the Premier League clash at the Stadium of Light on Sunday. Struggling Sunderland, who lost to United 3-0, hoped to show that Larsson’s challenge wasn’t worthy of a red card, but Football Association disciplinary chiefs have backed the dismissal.
