Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has been handed an additional one match ban and fined £10,000, following his recent red card against West Ham, the Football Association (FA) has confirmed.
The England international will miss Sunday’s clash with Manchester at Old Trafford, where the Foxes could wrap up the Premier League title with a win.
He was hit with an improper conduct charge, one which he admitted, following his furious reaction towards referee Jon Moss after being sent off for diving in last week’s 2-2 draw with West Ham.
The 29-year-old requested a personal hearing in front of the panel to explain his outburst to the red card he received against West Ham United, but will sit out another game.
An FA Statement reads: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Jamie Vardy has been given a one-match suspension with immediate effect, fined £10,000 and warned as to his future conduct.
“The Leicester City forward had accepted an FA charge of improper conduct following his second half dismissal against West Ham United on Sunday 17 April 2016.”
The foxes’ top scorer will now return for their final home game against Everton at the King Power Stadium on May 7.
