Southampton's Sadio Mane has successfully appealed the red card he was shown at Stoke on Saturday, the Football Association has announced.
Southampton have appealed against the red card shown to Sadio Mane during Saturday's 2-1 Premier League victory at Stoke.
Referee Lee Mason gave the forward a straight red card during the first minute of second-half stoppage time when he caught Stoke's Erik Pieters in mid-air having mistimed a jump to challenge for the ball.
The decision appeared harsh, however, particularly given Mane kept his eyes on the ball, and manager Ronald Koeman indicated the club's intention to appeal after the game.
"Southampton FC can confirm we have lodged an appeal against the red card shown to Sadio Mane at Stoke on Saturday," the club tweeted on Monday.
