UEFA says no mistaken identity by referee booking 'wrong' CSKA Moscow player in Man City match

by  Associated Press UEFA: No mistaken ID by ref in Man City match Associated Press - 6 November 2014 08:47-05:00 NYON, Switzerland (AP) — UEFA says Greek referee Tasos Sidiropoulos did not show a yellow card to the wrong CSKA Moscow player in Wednesday's Champions League game against Manchester City. Reports of CSKA's 2-1 win suggested Sidiropoulos should have sent off Pontus Wernbloom by showing the Sweden defender a second yellow card for his 77th-minute foul on City forward Sergio Aguero. Instead, Sergei Ignashevich was booked in what was widely reported — including by Man City's official website — as a case of mistaken identity. UEFA says Sidiropoulos explained in his written match report that Ignashevich was given a yellow card for dissent, and he did not think Wernbloom's foul merited a second yellow. The referee, in his first season at Champions League group-stage level, also sent off two Man City players.
