Fulham striker is banned for 8 matches after pushing the referee Fulham’s Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic could not accept the red card given by the referee against Manchester United in the FA Cup. He pushed the referee in anger. The Serbian striker has been banned for 8 matches for pushing the referee.
Fulham and Manchester United met in the FA Cup last March 19. Fulham went ahead with Aleksandar Mitrovic’s goal. However, in the 72nd minute, he saw a red card for abusing the referee. Mitrovic pushed him before leaving the field after refusing to accept the referee’s red card decision.
The FA said in a statement on Tuesday (April 4): ‘We have sought to ensure that Mitrovic is appropriately punished for his misconduct with the referee. For that, he has been banned for three more matches.
Along with the red card, Mitrovic was given a three-match ban. Mitrovic was subsequently fined £75,000 and banned for two matches after pleading guilty. This time he was banned for three more matches.
Mitrovic’s one match ban has ended. There are 7 matches left. Mitrovic will not return to the field before the middle of next May.
