Aston Villa’s Leandro Bacuna Gets Six-Match Ban For For Abusing A Ref

Aston Villa midfielder Leandro Bacuna has been banned for six games for abusing a match official in their home win over Derby.
The Dutchman was dismissed by referee Andrew Madley in the 94th minute of the 1-0 victory over Derby in the Championship last Saturday.

He shoved assistant Mark Russell after a throw-in was awarded to the visitors.
“Aston Villa’s Leandro Bacuna will serve a six-match suspension following his dismissal in the game against Derby County,” read an FA statement.

“He admitted a breach of FA Rule E3 in that his behaviour in or around the 94th minute of the game constituted violent conduct in circumstances where the standard punishment of three matches would be clearly insufficient.

“Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, a three-match suspension was added to the sanction the player is already serving following his dismissal.”
The 25-year-old will not be available for Villa until April 8, when they host Burton in the Championship.

Bacuna will be ruled out of the matches against Rotherham, Huddersfield, Sheffield Wednesday, Wigan, Norwich and QPR.
