The Football Association has confirmed that Jamie Vardy will miss Leicester City’s potential title-winning match at Manchester United on Sunday after banning him for an additional game for improper conduct.
Leicester will wrap up the Premier League title with a win at Old Trafford this weekend after Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with West Brom, but they will have to do so without their talismanic striker.
Vardy confronted referee Jon Moss after being sent off during the 2-2 draw against West Ham on April 17 having been shown a second yellow card for simulation.
The England international, who automatically sat out Sunday’s 4-0 win over Swansea, was also fined £10,000 while Leicester have been docked £20,000 for their players’ behavior in the latter stages of the match against West Ham.
An FA statement read: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Jamie Vardy has been given a one-match suspension with immediate effect, fined £10,000 and warned as to his future conduct.
