Broncos james gavet accepts three week ban for shoulder charge on bryant
SOUTHAMPTON – The Football Association is today ordering Southampton defender Benji Marshall to perform 100 hours of unpaid work for his own protection after being found guilty of striking Brisbane’s Mat바카라thew Wright on the shoulder.
Marshall has been suspended with immediate effect for six months for the incident which occurred after a Southampton goal on a Sunday night.
The SFA has not made its decision on the length of the suspension which means it is likely to be for at least three weeks.
“The incident occurred with his shoulder against the Brisbane defence,” said a statement from the SFA.
“Benji is already paying a sanction that is very severe and could mean a substantial loss of his playing career.
“The consequences for his team-mates, and for the players on the pitch, would be severe.
“It is essential that players are offered appropriate measures that take into account their unique skills and risks and that these penalties are tailored to the players’ unique circumstances.
“Furthermore, given Benji’s strong character and record of conduct on and off the pitch, he has already provided Southampton with sufficient assistance and support to ensure he does not face further sanction.”
