FA statement: Bacuna handed six-game ban

Aston Villa’s Leandro Bacuna will serve a six-match suspension following his dismissal the game against Derby County on February 25, 2017.

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.
