Guillermo Varela has been suspended by his loan club Eintracht Frankfurt and told to go back to Manchester United after getting a tattoo against orders.
Varela, 24, got the artwork on Monday – before Saturday’s German Cup final – and his arm suffered an inflammation.
“The club cannot tolerate that a player would defy instructions,” said sporting director Fredi Bobic.
“We’d been thinking about a loan extension. But that won’t happen. He’ll be suspended with immediate effect.”
The Uruguayan, who joined United in 2013, has only made 10 competitive appearances for the Bundesliga side since joining them on a year-long loan last summer.
