Lionel Messi yellow card appeal rejected despite bottle throwing incident [Irish Times]

December 4, 2014

Following the incident last Sunday when Leo Messi was struck by a bottle thrown by a Valencia supporter and slightly injured, the Argentine striker was shown a yellow card for wasting time by the referee. The ref wasn’t aware of the incident and so Barça appealed the decision.

It seems a bit harsh that it wasn’t overturned in the end. What do you think?
