UEFA suspend Aquilani

UEFA have suspended Alberto Aquilani after confirming a case of mistaken identity during Milan-Barcelona.

Alessandro Nesta was booked for the nudge on Xavi that gave Barca a hotly contested penalty in the first half of that 3-2 Champions League result.

The push was actually done by Aquilani, who had already been carded during the match, so would have been sent off.

As Barcelona won 3-2 anyway, UEFA have simply moved the yellow card to Aquilani’s record and therefore he is suspended against Viktoria Plzen.
