Van Dijk Hit With Extra One-Match Ban For Reaction To Newcastle Red Card

Van Dijk Hit With Extra One-Match Ban For Reaction To Newcas

Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk has been suspended for one additional match and fined £100,000 after admitting he acted in an improper manner following his red card in a win at Newcastle United last month.

The Dutch centre-back was dismissed in the 28th minute for fouling Alexander Isak.

He initially refused to leave the pitch and then remonstrated with referee John Brooks before walking off.

The 32-year-old also appeared to argue with the fourth official Craig Pawson before making his way down the tunnel at St James' Park.

In turn, the Liverpool captain got suspended for the 3-0 win over Aston Villa before the international break, and will now also be unavailable to face Wolves on September 16.

A statement from the FA reads: "Virgil van Dijk has been suspended for one match and fined £100,000 for breaching FA Rule E3.1 during Liverpool's Premier League fixture against Newcastle on Sunday August 27.

"The defender admitted that he acted in an improper manner and used abusive and insulting words towards a match official after being sent off in the 29th minute, and the sanctions were subsequently imposed by an independent regulatory commission."
