image for UEFA Climbdown On Fletcher Likely

It's been announced in the last few minutes, that European football's governing body, UEFA, may well back down over the Darren Fletcher sending-off incident during the Champions League match between Manchester United and Arsenal on Tuesday night.

Fletcher was unfairly dismissed by Italian referee, Roberto Rosetti, for a good challenge on Cesc Fabregas, which effectively prevents him from appearing in the Final on 27 May.

Now, however, UEFA general secretary David Taylor has indicated that, were United to challenge that decision, the likelihood is that UEFA would refer it to their disciplinary body. According to Taylor:

"They'd see if there were circumstances to justify a departure from procedure."

The development provides Fletcher - who sat on the bench at last year's final - with a chance of appearing in the CL Final, a match he thought he would not be part of, after Rosetti's crazy decision at the Emirates on Tuesday.

United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, said:

"I flippen knew all that moanen would do the flippen trick!"
