RIO FERDINAND GIVEN 4-GAME BAN
By Football Talk.
Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has had his ban extended to 4 games after losing his appeal against an FA violent conduct charge.
Ferdinand will now miss United’s games against Arsenal, Portsmouth, Everton, and Aston Villa.
An FA statement read: “At an Independent Regulatory Commission today, Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand was given a four-match suspension to be served with immediate effect.
“Ferdinand denied a charge of violent conduct in relation to an incident in Manchester United’s home match with Hull City on Saturday 23 January 2010.
“Furthermore, the Independent Commission felt that the player’s denial of the charge was frivolous and on that basis have awarded an additional one-match ban upon the statutory three-match ban awarded for violent conduct. ”
