West Ham fail over Carroll ban

9:32 am on 8 February 2014

West Ham United have failed with a legal challenge to the Football Association's decision to uphold Andy Carroll's three-match suspension.

The England striker copped a red card in their last English Premier League match against Swansea, and his ban is a big blow to the Hammers' bid to avoid relegation.

Meanwhile Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic will leave the struggling champions at the end of the season, by mutual agreement.
