Manchester United have been fined £6,000 by UEFA for ‘improper conduct’ after five players collected yellow cards in last week’s win over Granada.

Manchester United stars Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Harry Maguire and Nemanja Matic were all cautioned by Portuguese referee Artur Dias as Manchester United beat Granada 2-0.

Dias was criticised for his performance because Granada committed 14 fouls to United’s 12 but only received two yellow cards.

Manchester United have 90 days to pay the fine, which was handed down by UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary body on Wednesday.
