One-game ban for Beckham

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu has been handed a two-match ban for his part in last weekend's post-match brawl, while former England captain David Beckham was suspended for one game for his late red card in the 1-0 Ligue 1 win at Evian.

David Beckham: Sent off at Evian

Beckham was given his marching orders in the last minute - six minutes after being introduced as a late substitute in Annecy - for a dangerous lunge on Youssef Adnane, with fellow midfielder Marco Verratti having also been dismissed.

Evian striker Saber Khelifa and PSG goalkeeper Sirigu were then involved in an altercation which saw both also red-carded as skirmishes ensued after the full-time whistle.

The disciplinary commission of the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) dished out two-game bans to Sirigu, Verratti, and Khelifa, with the former having risked further punishment for refusing to return to the pitch to be shown the red card by referee Olivier Thual.

The bans mean Sirigu, Verratti and Beckham will all miss this weekend's potential title-decider at the Parc des Princes. Victory over Valenciennes on Sunday will guarantee the championship for Carlo Ancelotti's side if Marseille fail to overcome Bastia on Saturday.

PSG assistant sporting director Olivier Letang was also suspended for a month after it emerged that he prevented Sirigu from returning to the pitch to be shown the red card.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
