Naby Kieta Bags Three Bundesliga Matches Ban

Published

on

RB Leipzig midfielder, Naby Keita, has been banned for three Bundesliga matches.

The ban came after he was sent off during the weekend for accidentally kicking Christoph Kramer in the face during Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Borussia.

 

The 22-year-old midfielder, who will join Liverpool next season, however, apologised for the clumsy foul, which split Kramer’s lip.

Keita, who was sent off six minutes from the end, will now miss Leipzig’s forthcoming league games against Augsburg on Tuesday, Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday and Cologne on October 1.

Timo Werner had given Leipzig the lead at the Red Bull Arena but Thorgan Hazard converted a penalty to equalise for visitors, Borrusia.

However, it was Keita’s brilliant pass that allowed Jean-Kevin Augustin to slot home and put Leipzig 2-1 up before the break, but Lars Stindl got Borussia’s second equaliser with half an hour to go.
