Mousa Dembele: Tottenham midfielder gets six-game ban for violent conduct

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele has been banned for six games by the FA for violent conduct against Chelsea’s Diego Costa.

Belgium international Dembele appeared to eye-gouge forward Costa during Spurs’ 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Monday.

Referee Mark Clattenburg did not punish the 28-year-old during the game.

Dembele chose not to contest the charge, and will now be unavailable to manager Mauricio Pochettino until Spurs’ fourth game of next season.
