Paris Saint-Germain star Angel Di Maria has received a four-match ban for spitting during a late-game melee earlier this month.
The incident happened during a clash toward the end of PSG’s 1-0 loss to Marseille. A tense battle broke out, that saw five players sent off in the final moments of the contest.
The two teams were thus involved in a clash at the end of the contest. And Di Maria was caught spitting on Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez.
Moreover, Neymar was among those who received a red card for hitting Gonzalez (in response to his racist insults, per Neymar).
While the reigning Ligue 1 champions have now claimed six points from their first four matches in the French season, Di Maria has scored one goal in three games for PSG so far this season.
