Bordeaux`s Diarra gets six-match ban for pushing referee

Girondins Bordeaux captain Alou Diarra has been handed a six-match ban for shoving the referee in a Ligue 1 game, the French League (LFP) said on Thursday.

Girondins Bordeaux captain Alou Diarra has been handed a six-match ban for shoving the referee in a Ligue 1 game, the French League (LFP) said on Thursday.
"The ban includes the three matches Diarra already missed following the disciplinary committee`s decision to suspend him provisionally on Oct. 21," the LFP said in a statement.
France captain Diarra, Bordeaux`s holding midfielder, pushed the referee after being sent off in a 1-0 loss at Auxerre last month. He apologised immediately afterwards.

Diarra will miss the league games versus Valenciennes, Nancy and Arles-Avignon but can play for France against England at Wembley on Nov. 17 because the ban only covers domestic games.
