MCFC have just announced that the English Football Association have withdrawn Pablo Zabaleta’s three match suspension following a ludicrous red card at Arsenal…

City confirmed:

‘Pablo Zabaleta’s red card at Arsenal on Wednesday night has been overturned on appeal by the Football Association.
At a Regulatory Commission hearing today, a claim for wrongful dismissal from Zabaleta was upheld.

As a result, Zabaleta’s three match suspension has been withdrawn and the Argentine defender is now available to face Leicester City in the FA Cup on Sunday.’

Zabaleta has been on fire for City this season and it would have been a travesty had he been sanctioned as a result of Bakari Sagna’s pathetically instigated confrontation. That’ll be another ‘defeat’ for Arsenal fans to seethe over this weekend!


Head for the VMC Match Day Experience Forum for the build up and beyond to second placed City’s Sunday break from league hostilities as we face Leicester and Svennis in a sold out FA Cup tie.
