Premier league has announced Why Andre Onana was NOT sent off despite being shown two yellow cards in Coventry win.

Despite picking up two yellow cards during Manchester United’s thrilling FA Cup semi-final victory against Coventry, Andre Onana was allowed to remain on the field.

With five minutes remaining, Onana received a booking for wasting time. Coventry then scored an incredible equalizer in injury time. Notwithstanding a score that the Championship team saw disallowed for offside in the last minute, neither team was able to go beyond extra time.

Following a penalty shootout, Onana got into a fight with referee Robert Jones and was booked. Onana was permitted to continue playing despite receiving two yellow cards, and United won after Ben Sheaf’s penalty shot went over the crossbar.

However, Jones did not err; according to IFAB regulation 10.3, bookings do not carry over into penalty shootouts. According to the regulation, cautions and yellow cards from the game do not carry over into penalties.

“Any player who received a red card during the match is unable to participate. During penalties, referees, players, and replacements may get a red or yellow card.”

Onana will not serve a suspension in the FA Cup final, which pits United against bitter rivals Manchester City, according to the FA. Aston Villa’s victory against Lille in the Europa Conference League on Thursday included a similar scenario.

After receiving a booking during regular time, Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez received a second yellow during the shootout. Although the Argentine acknowledged that he was unaware of the regulations, Martinez will serve a suspension for the first leg of Villa’s semi-final.

“My career has been an incredible journey. It was my destiny today, and I am a hard worker and believer,” he said on TNT Sports.

“I have always said that I owe my teammates in certain situations. Even last night when we were watching Real Madrid, the manager warned us that we could need to use the penalty kick, and in those situations, I was in control of my box.

“I don’t know what the referee wanted for me since we’re losing the game and I get booked after 30 minutes.” I asked the ball guy for a ball during the shoot-out because there wasn’t one on the penalty spot, and I was booked for it. I just don’t know what the regulations are.”
