Nigeria's Gbolahan Salami Given Six Match-Ban

The Finland FA have handed a six-match ban to Nigerian striker Gbolahan Salami.
Salami was handed a straight red card deep into injury time of his side KuPS’s 2-1 loss at home to Mariehamn on June 4.

The Nigerian vehemently protested a disallowed goal, directing his anger at referee Jani Laakosen.

Though initially given a mandatory two-match ban for the red card, a Disciplinary Committee of the FA has since extended the sanction to six matches.

This is after Salami admitted his guilt in a hearing into the incident.

As a result, the Nigerian (who has already sat out two matches) will now miss KuPS’s upcoming fixtures against Ilves, PS Kemi, HIFK and Lahti.

The news is a blow to KuPS, as Salami is one of their leading goal scorers with four strikes in the Veikkausliiga this season.
