​Man Utd's Valencia avoids suspension for red card friendly

Manchester United defender Antonio Valencia will not serve a suspension following his red card in the pre-season game against Real Salt Lake on Monday.

The FA have now amended their regulations, so would take action only in the most serious of cases.

Valencia's challenge on Sebastian Saucedo does not fall into that category, so the Ecuador international will be available for the start of the Premier League campaign next month.
