[Barça B] Barça appeal Dos Santos' red card

FC Barcelona presented an appeal to the Competition Committee for the red card shown to the Mexican midfielder during Barça B's match against Valladolid.

Jonathan dos Santos was given his marching orders on the 87th minute in the match against Valladolid for “kicking an opponent in the leg, no medical attention was required after said kick, when the ball was at a distance,” according to the referees post-match report.

The Club have presented an appeal to the Competition Committee to nullify the red card so that the Mexican can play in Barça B’s next match. (via FCBarcelona.com)
