Soccer-Man City captain Kompany wins red card appeal

LONDON, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has won his appeal for wrongful dismissal in Sunday’s league win at Arsenal, the Premier League champions said on Tuesday.

The Belgian was shown a straight red card by referee Mike Dean in the 75th minute for what was deemed a two-footed lunge on Jack Wilshire.

“We can officially confirm that Vincent Kompany’s red card against Arsenal has been overturned,” City said on their Twitter feed.

Second-placed City, who won 2-0 at the Emirates, trail leaders Manchester United by seven points. (Writing by Justin Palmer, editing by Mark Meadows)
