SYDNEY (AP) — An Australian football player will miss two league games for shoving a 10-year-old ball boy past due in his group’s FFA Cup ultimate loss closing week.
Adelaide United defender Michael Marrone won a four-match ban, with two suspended, after showing at Football Federation Australia’s impartial disciplinary committee on Tuesday.
He might be to be had to play Adelaide’s A-League sport towards Newcastle on Dec. 16.
The FFA closing week charged Marrone for “engaging in serious unsporting conduct” all the way through Adelaide’s 2-1 loss to Sydney FC. Marrone knocked over the ball boy whilst making an attempt to get the ball to take a throw-in all the way through overtime.
The ball boy and his father had been later allowed to participate within the trophy presentation rite.
While there aren’t any precedents in Australia for such fees, Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard was once banned for 3 games for violent behavior after kicking a ball boy in 2013.
