Keane handed one-match ban

Manchester United FC captain Roy Keane has received a one-match ban following his sending-off at FC Porto.

Manchester United FC captain Roy Keane has received a one-match ban following his sending-off in the UEFA Champions League defeat by FC Porto.

Challenge on goalkeeper
Keane was dismissed in the closing stages of the first knockout round first leg, which Porto won 2-1 in Portugal, following a challenge on opposition goalkeeper Vítor Baía. He caught the keeper with a trailing foot as he jumped over him.

Sits out return
UEFA's Control and Disciplinary Body today ruled he would sit out the return leg against the Portuguese champions next Tuesday (9 March). He will, therefore, be available to play in the quarter-finals should United overcome their first-leg deficit.
