Manchester City have decided not to appeal the red card shown to Samir Nasri for head-butting Norwich’s Sebastien Bassong on Saturday.

The incident occurred in the first half of City’s 4-3 over Norwich at Carrow Road and the dismissal drew strong condemnation from Roberto Mancini, who claimed the club would appeal the decision following the match.

However ,City have since reconsidered their position and announced there will be no challenge to the red card, which means the Frenchman will be suspended for three matches.

“The Football Association has confirmed that Samir Nasri will serve a three-match suspension, following his red card during the 4-3 win at Norwich on Saturday,” a statement released by Manchester City read.

“Nasri will now miss the New Year’s Day visit from Stoke City, the FA Cup tie with Watford (January 5) and the trip to Arsenal on January 13.”
