Leicester’s Vardy given one-game ban
LONDON: Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy will miss his side’s potential title decider at Manchester United on Sunday after accepting a misconduct charge, England’s Football Association announced on Tuesday.
Vardy, who has also been fined £10,000 ($14,540, 12,890 euros), was charged after reacting angrily to being sent off following a second yellow card for diving in Leicester’s recent 2-2 draw with West Ham United.
Vardy charged with improper conduct
He missed last Sunday’s 4-0 win over Swansea City through suspension and will also have to sit out this weekend’s trip to Old Trafford, where Leicester can claim their first league title if they win.
“Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Jamie Vardy has been given a one-match suspension with immediate effect, fined £10,000 and warned as to his future conduct,” the FA said in a statement.
