FC Copenhagen will have Jonas Winds expulsion against Esbjerg cancelled.
U21-landsholdsangriberen was a very controversial red card by referee Mads-Kristoffer Kristoffersen, and it is it, which is unique in scandinavia because the førerhold will now have Disciplinærinstansen to reconsider
- I can confirm that we want to Disciplinærinstansen look at the matter. We do not believe that the Jonas Wind should have had the second yellow card, so hopefully it gets canceled, so he is not further penalised, says Jes Mortensen, head of communications in the FCK, to Ekstra Bladet.
Jonas Wind was shown at the end of 1. half-time, when he jumped over the Jeppe Brinchs flying tackle.
It saved him from being trampled, but it cost him an expulsion, as Mads-Kristoffer Kristoffersen found that the big FCK striker was filmed.
- There comes a bit of a benbrækker-tackling, how I feel, I will have to jump over and dodge it, if I want to keep both of my ankles in good shape.
- the Intention is not to make plays, it would be foolish, when I had a yellow card in advance, said Jonas Wind after the expulsion, which automatically results in a karantænedag.

He is thus out of Sunday's showdown against the OB, unless Disciplinærinstansen (like the FCK-manager Stale Solbakken) estimates that the yellow card was completely out in the woods.
Earlier in the spring had FC Midtjylland successfully with a similar objection. Paul Onuachu received two yellow cards against AGF, but FCM appealed, and the Football Disciplinærinstans overturned the red card.
It meant that the long nigerian attacker lax quarantine.
