The Football Association has confirmed that Arthur Masuaku, the West Ham defender will serve a mandatory six-game ban for spitting at an opponent.
On Saturday, the Frenchman reacted to a challenge from Nick Powell in the Hammers’ FA Cup loss to Wigan. The 24-year-old, Masuaku, later issued an apology on social media, saying his actions were “unacceptable and out of character”.
On 18th March, he will not be available for selection until West Ham host Manchester United at London Stadium. David Moyes, the Hammers manager is already without a number of players because of injury and has described the incident as “despicable”.
He said: “[Masuaku] will deserve everything he gets and he will get something he deserves from us”. The east Londoners are four points clear of the Premier League relegation zone and Masuaku will miss matches against Crystal Palace, Brighton, Watford, Liverpool, Swansea and Burnley.
