BUSQUETS CLEARED TO PLAY FOR BARCELONA IN WEMBLEY FINAL

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets can play in the Champions League final against Manchester United after being cleared of racial abuse.

Uefa has dismissed claims by Barca's Spanish rivals Real Madrid that Busquets racially insulted full-back Marcelo during their semi-final tie.

A statement on Barca's website read: "Uefa has rejected the complaint filed by Real Madrid."

Busquets is now free to line up against United at Wembley on Saturday 28 May.

European football's governing body said via a statement on its website that it had "decided to dismiss the complaint lodged by Real due to a lack of strong and convincing evidence".

Real posted a video on their website before the second leg showing Busquets allegedly calling Marcelo "mono" (monkey) during Barca's 2-0 win at the Bernabeu.

The incident was one of many in an ill-tempered match during which Real player Pepe and coach Jose Mourinho were sent off.

After the game both clubs lodged complaints about each other to Uefa.

The second leg at the Nou Camp ended in a 1-1 draw, with Barca going through to the final 3-1 on aggregate.
