Statement - Famara Diédhiou

Bristol City Football Club has released a statement following news that Famara Diédhiou has been found, by an FA Regulatory Commission, to have breached Rule E1(a).

The breach relates to an alleged spitting incident during the club’s 3-1 win over Birmingham City at Ashton Gate on Tuesday, April 10th 2018.

The club is extremely disappointed with the decision of the Regulatory Commission and continues to give its full support to Diédhiou, who vehemently denies the allegation.

The Regulatory Commission has imposed a six game ban on Diédhiou, which will come into effect at the start of the 2018/19 season.

Bristol City has requested the full written reasons from The FA and upon receipt will consult with the club’s legal team as to the options for appealing the decision of the Regulatory Commission.

No further comment will be made by the club at this time.
