Jeremie Aliadiere given extra game ban for 'frivolous' red card appeal

Jeremie Aliadiere given extra game ban for 'frivolous' red card appeal

Middlesbrough striker Jeremie Aliadiere had a suspension increased to four matches Tuesday after his appeal against a red card was deemed "frivolous" by the Football Association.
Aliadiere was sent off in the 85th minute in Middlesbrough's 3-2 loss at Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday for slapping Reds midfielder Javier Mascherano in the face.
"Claim for wrongful dismissal rejected _ three-match suspension plus additional one-match suspension as claim was considered frivolous," the FA said.
Aliadiere will miss the FA Cup fifth-round replay with Sheffield United on Wednesday and Premier League matches against Reading, Aston Villa and Arsenal.
