The British Football Association announced today, Thursday, the suspension of Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani, Manchester United striker.
According to the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, the British Football Association decided to suspend Cavani for 3 matches and fine him 100,000 pounds, after he used the word racism in one of his posts on social media.
It indicated that the FA considered that the words of the Manchester United striker to one of his friends bear racial discrimination and accused him of misconduct.
It explained that Cavani has until January 4 to respond to the accusation, but the Uruguayan player decided not to object.
Cavani will be absent from United’s matches against Aston Villa in the Premier League, Manchester City in the Carabao Cup, and Watford in the FA Cup.
The Manchester United striker will return against Liverpool on January 17 in the Premier League.
