Brighton striker Tomer Hemed was proven guilty by Football Association and has been charged for three-match ban due to his violent conduct.
Hemed, who scored the winner in Brighton’s 1-0 victory against Newcastle, appeared to stamp on United States defender DeAndre Yedlin’s leg in the 88th minute.
The statement from the Football Association said: “Tomer Hemed will serve a three-match suspension with immediate effect after a violent conduct charge against him was found proven. The player denied the charge. However, it was found proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.”
It was very clear that the incident was not seen by the match officials but it was caught on video and the 30-year-old Israel international denied the FA charge of “an alleged act of violent conduct”, which was proven after an independent regulatory commission meeting.
Going back, Brighton boss Chris Hughton defended his player after the match, saying: “There has been contact but my first impression is no intent and, knowing the individual, I would say no intent.”
Moving forward, Hemed will miss the following Premier League matches against Arsenal (away), Everton (home) and West Ham United (away) next month of October.
