The Uruguay striker has pleaded guilty to the British Football Association for using insulting and / or inappropriate language after scoring United’s winning goal in Southampton on November 29.

He missed New Year’s Day against Aston Villa and refrained from two more matches in criticism in several quarters of FA’s harshness of action.
