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!”
But De Bruyne failed to take advantage of his let off as Man City slipped to a 2-0 defeat at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday evening.
Goals from ex-Premier League star Idrissa Gueye and Barcelona legend Lionel Messi secured all three points for PSG.
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.
