PSG winger David
Beckham has been suspended for one game for his late red card in the 1-0 ligue 1
victory at Evian.
Goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu was also given a two-match ban
for his part lats weekend’s post-match brawl.
Beckham was given his marching orders in the last minute -
six minutes after being introduced as a late substitute in Annecy - for a
dangerous lunge on Youssef Adnane, with fellow midfielder Marco Verratti having
also been dismissed.
Evian striker Saber Khelifa and PSG goalkeeper Sirigu were
then involved in an altercation which saw both also red-carded as skirmishes
ensued after the full-time whistle.
The disciplinary commission of the Ligue de Football
Professionnel (LFP) dished out two-game bans to Sirigu, Verratti, and Khelifa,
with the former having risked further punishment for refusing to return to the
pitch to be shown the red card by referee Olivier Thual.
The bans mean Sirigu, Verratti and Beckham will all miss
this weekend's potential title-decider at the Parc des Princes. Victory over
Valenciennes on Sunday will guarantee the championship for Carlo Ancelotti's
side if Marseille fail to overcome Bastia tomorrow.
PSG assistant sporting director Olivier Letang was also
suspended for a month after it emerged that he prevented Sirigu from returning
to the pitch to be shown the red card.
