Di Maria Slammed With 4 Match Ban Spitting Incident

Di Maria

Paris St-Germain forward, Angel di Maria has been banned for four matches for his action in a bad-tempered Ligue 1 defeat by Marseille on 13 September.

Di Maria, 32, was charged for spitting at Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez during a match in which five players were also sent off after a late brawl.

The Argentina international was one of seven PSG players to test positive for coronavirus before the season.

The league did not confirm his ban was for spitting.

Former Manchester United winger Di Maria had returned a negative Covid-19 test before the French top-flight season began.

The video assistant referee chose not to take action against Di Maria at the time of the incident with Gonzalez and he played the full game as champions PSG lost 1-0.
