Vardy ban ‘un­fair’ says Le­ices­ter chief

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

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.
