MANCHESTER UNITED fans have criticised Uefa after Manchester City ace Kevin De Bruyne escaped a red card against Paris Saint-Germain.
The Belgian, 30, received a yellow for catching Idrissa Gueye with his studs – despite Aaron Wan-Bissaka being sent off for a similar challenge.
Wan-Bissaka, 23, was shown a red after catching a Young Boys player with a similar challenge in their Champions League clash two weeks ago.
But De Bruyne escaped with just a booking, even though VAR checked referee Carlos del Cerro Grande’s initial decision.
And United fans on social media have slammed Uefa for a lack of consistency, with one tweeting: “Why wasn’t De Bruyne sent off?
“Surely it was no different to Wan-Bissaka’s challenge?”
While another wrote: “How De Bruyne didn’t get a red when Wan-Bissaka did for near enough an identical challenge is beyond me.
“Where’s the consistency?”

And one supporter asked: “How has De Bruyne not been sent off for that? HOW?
“VAR is so inconsistent! Wan-Bissaka was sent off for a similar tackle, no questions asked. Unbelievable!”
The result sees Man City drop to third in their Champions League group after Club Brugge sealed a shock 2-1 win at RB Leipzig.
