Swansea opt against appealing Jordan Ayew’s red card

Andre consoles Jordan Ayew after red-card

Swansea City have reluctantly decided against appealing the red card shown to Jordan Ayew at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

The Swans forward Ayew was sent off after a challenge with Terriers midfielder Jonathan Hogg.

Boss Carlos Carvalhal felt the decision was harsh, arguing after the game that both players had made similar challenges as they competed for the ball.

But the Swans have opted not to appeal referee Michael Oliver’s decision, meaning Ayew will be banned for the club’s next three matches.

The Swans were conscious that if an appeal is deemed frivolous by the Football Association, suspensions can be extended.

Ayew will now miss the Emirates FA Cup quarter-final against Tottenham this coming weekend as well as the Premier League trips to Manchester United and West Brom.
