Sidiropoulos denies cautioning wrong player in UCL

UEFA says hay Greek referee Anastasios Sidiropoulos did not show a yellow card to the wrong CSKA Moscow player in Wednesday's Champions League game against Manchester City. Reports of CSKA's 2-1 win suggested Sidiropoulos should have sent off Pontus Wernbloom by showing the Sweden defender a second yellow card for his 77th-minute foul on City forward Sergio Aguero. Instead, Sergei Ignashevich was booked in what was widely reported — including by Manchester City's official website — as a case of mistaken identity.
According to UEFA, Sidiropoulos explained in his written match report that Ignashevich was given a yellow card for dissent and he did not think Wernbloom's foul merited a second yellow. The referee, in his first season at Champions League group-stage level, also sent-off two Manchester City players.
