Jamie Vardy will miss Sunday’s game against Manchester United after the Leicester striker has been given a further one-match ban for his abusive gestures against the match official.
Vardy has also been fined £10,000 for his improper conduct and will be forced to watch his second game in a row from the stands.
The incident dates back to Leicester’s 2-2 draw against West Ham when the striker was shown his second yellow and the subsequent red card after striker’s alleged attempt at diving.
Vardy did not take kindly to the decision made by Jon Moss and shouted “
you fu****g tw*t” at the ref. Vardy was then charged by The FA for improper conduct which has now led to his further one-match ban.
Vardy missed Leicester’s 4-0 win over Swansea and watched the game from the stands. However, he might regret not being available for the game at Old Trafford as it could be the moment when Leicester clinch their historic league title.
Earlier today, Tottenham played a 1-1 draw against West Brom which now means that Leicester are just a win away from securing the Premier League title.
Vardy has been a major part in Leicester’s success story this season by scoring 22 goals. However, he will miss the game on Sunday afternoon as we approach a historic weekend where Leicester can finally be crowned as the Premier League Champions.
