Leeds United defender has red card against Millwall rescinded

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Leeds United defender Gaetano Berardi has had his red card against Millwall rescinded.

The Swiss centre-back was shown a straight red card in Saturday’s 2-1 win for the Lions – with referee James Linington initially ruling he had fouled Tom Bradshaw and awarding the hosts a penalty which was converted by Jed Wallace.

But Leeds United issued a statement today. It said: “An independent regulatory commission has removed Gaetano Berardi’s one-match suspension with immediate effect following a claim of wrongful dismissal.

“The Whites defender was sent off for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity against Millwall in the EFL Championship on 5 October 2019.”
