Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has decided not to appeal against an extra one-match ban following his clash with Craig Fagan.
The new England skipper was charged with violent conduct last month after an incident with Hull City striker Fagan at OId Trafford.
Ferdinand denied the charge and was handed an additional one-game ban for a frivolous appeal on top of his original three-game suspension.
Ferdinand will now miss United’s upcoming Premier League matches against Aston Villaand Everton.
Sir Alex Ferguson will have Ferdinand available for their Carling Cup final against Villa having served the second game of his ban at the weekend against Portsmouth.
