 ENGLISH F.A UPHOLDS SADIO MANE`S THREE-MATCH BAN

English Football Association has upheld SADIO MANE’s three-game ban after his red card in Liverpool’s 5-0 defeat to Manchester City.

MANE was shown a straight red card by referee JON MOSS after his high boot caught City goalkeeper EDERSON in the face towards the end of the first half on Saturday.

Liverpool appealed the length of the ban rather than the dismissal itself under what is known as ‘excessive punishment’, with the claim that three-match ban is too harsh.

With the FA’s decision to uphold the ban, the Senegal international will miss the weekend clash at home to Burnley, Liverpool’s visit to Leicester in the Carabao Cup and their Premier League match with the Foxes the following week.
