Moussa Sissoko’s charged for violent conduct by the English FA

The France international Moussa Sissoko charged for violent conduct by the English Football Association(FA) over an incident involving Bournemouth’s Harry Arter.


His club Tottenham Hotspur announced this week that they accept the charge and they will not be appealing after their midfielder elbowed Bournemouth’s Harry Arter.

Sissoko, who came on as a substitute in Tottenham’s 0-0 draw against Bournemouth on Saturday, appeared to elbow Arter in the face in the second half but escaped punishment. The incident was not seen by the match officials, but caught on video.

The France international is likely to be handed a three-match ban, which would mean he misses Tuesday’s League Cup tie against Liverpool, and league games against Leicester City and Arsenal.

“After reviewing the video we have said that we accept the charge and now we move forward,” Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino told reporters on Monday.
