Vardy ban ‘unfair’ says Leicester chief
LONDON: Leicester chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha yesterday rated England striker Jamie Vardy’s three-match ban as ‘unfair’. Vardy received the suspension from the Football Association (FA) for his sending off against Stoke City at the weekend. The FA on Tuesday rejected the ailing Premier League champion’s claim of wrongful dismissal which hinged upon Vardy being off balance as he was harried by Glen Johnson when he challenged Stoke forward Mame Diouf just before the halfhour mark. Referee Craig Pawson did not hesitate in showing him a red card for the two-footed challenge. Srivaddhanaprabha wrote on Instagram: “I am so sorry for the unfair judgement of referee to Vardy and more sorry that our appeal was rejected. This kind of judgement distort the charming of English Premier. “I spend a lot of time and effort to make my beloved LCFC a success, but this incident made me feel dispirit from football.
