Mohamed Elneny’s red card against Southampton overturned
London, April 10, 2018 (AltAfrika)-Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has had his red card against Southampton overturned by the Football Association.
The Egyptian was sent off in stoppage time following an altercation with Southampton full-back Cedric Soares as the Gunners won 3-2 at the Emirates Stadium.
The flashpoint came moments after Saints defender Jack Stephens had been dismissed for a clash with Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere.
An FA statement said: “Mohamed Elneny will be available for Arsenal’s next three games after an independent regulatory commission accepted that he was wrongly dismissed for violent conduct against Southampton on Sunday, April 8, 2018.”
