UEFA to reveal SAF and Nani sanctions on Thursday

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson and Nani will discover what punishments they face from UEFA on Thursday following their eventful Champions League exit to Real Madrid. Nani will definitely get a one-match suspension for the red card he picked up for a high tackle on Alvaro Arbeloa which could be extended but that is thought unlikely.

Ferguson is in trouble after failing to attend the mandatory post-match press conference, an offence which in extreme cases can bring a touchline ban.

Red Devils assistant-manager Mike Phelan said at the time Ferguson was too "distraught" to face the media.

In addition to a touchline suspension, the Scot could also be fined or warned about his future conduct.
