Sporting Kansas City’s Collin has red card rescinded

Sporting Kansas City defender Aurelien Collin has had his red card received on the weekend rescinded.

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.
