Sporting Kansas City’s Collin has red card rescinded

Sporting Kansas City defender Aurelien Collin has had his red card received on the weekend rescinded.

Sporting Kansas City defender Aurelien Collin has had his red card received on the weekend rescinded.

The 25-year old Frenchman was sent off in the 75th minute of the 3-2 loss to New England Revolution on Saturday but the MLS has stricken it from his record as it was a case of mistaken identity.

Upon viewing the footage, it has been established that the player who made high contact with a Revs opponent was in fact Birahim Diop.

As a result, Collin will not be suspended for the next league match. Further, Diop cannot be issued a red card retroactively, and was not sanctioned by the MLS Disciplinary Committee.
