Mansfield forward Adi Yussuf has been banned for five games and fined after being found guilty of urinating at the back of a stand during a recent game.

The misconduct charge from the Football Association is relation to the Sky Bet League Two fixture against Plymouth at Home Park on February 13, and occurred as Yussuf was warming up as a substitute.

Brendan Malone, the referee that day, included the incident in his report and Yussuf, 23, admitted the charge at a Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.

A statement on the FA website said: “Adi Yussuf has been suspended from all domestic club football for five first team competitive matches and fined £700 after he admitted an FA misconduct charge.

“It follows a breach of FA Rule E3 by the Mansfield Town player in or around the 30th and 53rd minute of the league fixture against Plymouth Argyle on 13 February 2016.

“The decision of the Independent Regulatory Commission, which sat on Thursday 10 March 2016, also included a warning as to the player’s future conduct.”

Yussuf joined Mansfield in the summer and has scored five goals in 23 league appearances, but all of those have come as a substitute.

Beginning with the trip to Bristol Rovers on Satutrday, Yussuf will miss subsequent matches against Portsmouth, Wycombe, Northampton and Hartlepool.
Mansfield are currently 10 in League Two and just two points shy of the play-off places.
