Man. City Appeals Against Kompany’s Red Card in F.A. Cup Loss

Jan. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Manchester City said it has appealed against the red card shown to Vincent Kompany in yesterday’s 3-2 loss against Manchester United in English soccer’s F.A. Cup.

The Football Association has “confirmed that a hearing will be held ahead of Wednesday evening’s Carling Cup semifinal first leg at home to Liverpool,” City said in a statement on its website.

Kompany was dismissed after 12 minutes yesterday at the Etihad Stadium for a two-footed challenge on Nani. He protested that he won the ball.

City’s captain would miss four matches if the suspension is upheld, including both legs of the Carling Cup semifinal.
