Chelsea Midfielder Ramires to Serve 4-Game Ban After Accepting FA Charge of Violent Conduct

ramires Chelsea Midfielder Ramires to Serve 4 Game Ban After Accepting FA Charge of Violent Conduct

Chelsea midfielder Ramires will serve a four-game ban after accepting The FA’s charge of violent conduct as a result of elbowing Seb Larsson of Sunderland last weekend.

The incident wasn’t seen by match officials, but was caught on video. A panel unanimously agreed that the elbow was violent conduct, and Ramires today accepted the charge.

The Brazilian receives a four match ban, which will start with immediate effect. That rules him out for the remainder of the 2013/14 season.

The ban includes three games for this offence plus an additional game for his sending off at Villa Park last month.
