Usually in a competitive football match, a player will get suspensions after getting a red card.

But the match between Manchester United and Real Salt Lake City is a friendly match, I was wondering if he'll get suspensions too. And, is there any examples of a player getting suspensions after being sent off in a friendly match?

  • Actually, in competitive matches, a player will always get suspensions after getting a red card. There are no exceptions. For a player to escape suspensions, the red card would need to be over-ruled by a tribunal. – garth Sep 24 '18 at 1:17

This manchestereveningnews article states that Valencia will not serve a suspension for his red card. With the help of same article,

Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes served three-match ban for being sent off in a pre-season tournament in Amsterdam 3-1 win over FC Porto. [Source]
