Manchester United striker, Edinson Cavani, has been fined £100,000 and banned for three matches following racial post on his Instagram account.
The FA, found Cavani guilty of violating Rule E3 and must also complete face-to-face education after he admitted a charge.
Following the ban, the striker will now miss United’s games against Aston Villa, Manchester City and Watford respectively.
On November 29, Cavani reposted an Instagram story, which featured a racially offensive term, after the club’s 3-2 win at Southampton.
He deleted the post and later apologised.
Prior to that, a statement released by FA read, “A comment posted on the Manchester FC striker’s Instagram page was insulting, abusive, improper and brought the game into disrepute contrary to FA Rule E3.1.
