Marseille forward Andre Ayew is banned for three matches following a tackle on Yohan Mollo in Ligue 1 last month.
Marseille forward Andre Ayew has been handed a retrospective three-match ban by Ligue 1's disciplinary committee this afternoon.
Ayew was cited for a challenge on Saint-Etienne winger Yohan Mollo last month, despite being booked for the tackle by referee Said Ennjimi.
The Ghana international defended himself by video link at a hearing into the incident yesterday, but the LFP have decided that his actions were worthy of a three-game suspension.
The 23-year-old will now miss tomorrow afternoon's clash with Reims, as well as Ligue 1 fixtures against Rennes and Sochaux in November.
Ayew has scored three goals in 12 appearances for L'OM so far this season, with his latest strike coming in Tuesday night's 2-1 defeat to Napoli in the Champions League.
