The UEFA Appeals Body has granted a stay of execution to the appeal lodged earlier today by Arsenal FC and their manager Arsène Wenger.
The Appeals Body will take a decision in due time, but not before Arsenal's UEFA Champions League game against Udinese Calcio in Italy on Wednesday.
Following the play-off first leg match between Arsenal and Udinese last week, the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body yesterday banned Wenger from carrying out his duties at Arsenal's next two UEFA competition matches and fined the English club €10,000. Without today's decision by the Appeals Body, the manager's suspension would have taken effect for the play-off second leg at Udinese.
