Leicester winger to miss rest of season after accepting misconduct charge

Date published: Tuesday 8th May 2018 6:40

Leicester winger Marc Albrighton will miss the rest of the season after accepting an FA misconduct charge following his red card against Crystal Palace.

Albrighton was dismissed during the Foxes’ 5-0 Premier League defeat at Selhurst Park last month and, after his sending-off, reacted angrily towards referee Mike Dean.

The FA announced on Tuesday that the 28-year-old will serve a two-match ban – and therefore miss Leicester’s two remaining games of the season – after accepting the charge, which “relates to his behaviour towards the referee”.

Albrighton was also fined £25,000.
