How long should Leicester’s Vardy be banned? How big of a loss is he?

9 Comments

Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy was sent off against West Ham United last weekend and he will definitely miss this Sunday’s clash with Swansea City (Watch live, 11:15 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via Live Extra).

However, following his second yellow card against the Hammers for what was deemed to be a dive in the box, Vardy confronted referee Jon Moss angirly, pointing a finger in his face and allegedly swearing at the official.

Moss included Vardy’s actions in his match report and an FA charge of improper conduct was issued against Vardy. It is thought he could be banned for at least one and possible two extra games for his alleged abuse of Moss and also for failing to leave the field of play promptly.

League leaders Leicester — they hold a five-point lead over Tottenham Hotspur with four games to go — could be without their top goalscorer for three of their last four games in the race for the title.

If Vardy is handed a three-game ban, things will get very interesting.
