The Portuguese star advanced the leader of the English Premier League in the 13th minute, but the expulsion in the 35th minute of Aaron Wan-Bissaka complicated everything for his team and the Bern team managed to come back in the second half, with goals from Cameroonian Moumi Ngamaleu (66) and, already in the last gasp, from American Theoson Siebatcheu (90 + 5).

This defeat, against the theoretically weakest team in the group, complicates the situation for Manchester United in a key that is completed by Spanish Villarreal and Italian Atalanta.

UEFA bans Ajax from wearing a Bob Marley shirt

Ajax will not be able to wear its Bob Marley shirt in Champions League matches because its design with three little birds violates the UEFA rules.

The Dutch champion was highly praised when he started wearing those black jackets with little red, yellow and green birds on the back.

It was a tribute to the Marley theme “Three Little Birds” (Tres Pajaritos) and became a kind of anthem for Ajax.

UEFA said it notified the club that the design would not be approved when it was submitted a year ago.

“The three birds, a tribute to the Bob Marley theme, do not represent an identification of the Ajax team as stipulated in Article 13 regulating the team,” UEFA said in a statement. He added that the manufacturer was given “options to adapt the design.”

Ajax decided to wear jackets without the birds in the games, but continue to sell the jerseys with them.

The main uniform of the club is red with white vertical stripes.
Ajax makes their Champions League debut this Wednesday against Sporting Lisbon. The group is completed by Borussia Dortmund and Turkish Beşiktaş.
