Burnley manager Vincent Kompany gets two-match ban


April 12, 2024

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has been handed a two-match touchline suspension following his red card against Chelsea on 30 March.

He will serve a one-game ban immediately, with the other match suspended until the end of the year.

Kompany was dismissed for protesting against a penalty decision that led to Lorenz Assignon being sent off.

The Belgian later said the standard of refereeing in this season’s Premier League “hasn’t been good enough”.

The former Manchester City captain, who admitted the charge of misconduct, has also been fined £10,000.
