Mitrovic Given 8-match Ban For Red Card in FA Cup Quarterfinal


April 5, 2023

Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic has been given an eight-match ban by the Football Association after pushing referee Chris Kavanagh in their FA Cup loss to Manchester United.

The Serbia striker received a three-match ban for the sending off, three for violent conduct and an additional two for “improper, abusive, insulting and threatening” language.

He will also receive a £75,000 fine.

Fulham manager Marco Silva will serve a two-match ban after he was sent off.

One game of Mitrovic’s ban has already been served, meaning the forward will be unavailable until Fulham’s match at Southampton on 13 May.
