Papiss Cisse Faces 3 Match Ban After Being Charged by FA

papiss-cisse

Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse is facing a three-match ban after being charged with violent conduct by the Football Association for using his elbow on Everton’s Seamus Coleman.

The FA’s video review panel looked at the incident, which happened in Newcastle’s 3-2 win on Sunday, and decided it was worthy of a charge and three-game ban.

Cisse has until 6pm on Tuesday to respond or else accept the ban which would begin with immediate effect.

If he accepts the charge, Cisse would miss the home match against Burnley on New Year’s Day, the FA Cup third round trip to Leicester at the weekend, and then the visit to top-of-the-table Chelsea on January 10.

After Sunday’s match Everton boss Roberto Martinez insisted Cisse should have been sent off for the “unacceptable” incident – especially as the striker went on to score.

Martinez said: “It is unacceptable, that action from Papiss Cisse.

“You don’t want to see that on a football pitch, that shouldn’t be allowed. Two players fighting for their position at a dead-ball situation and you end up deciding to take the law [into your own hands] by elbowing a fellow professional, it’s unacceptable and that should have been a red card.”
