Ghana international Jonathan Mensah has been handed a three-match ban by the Ligue 1 Disciplinary Committee after sitting on his red card incident.

“The Disciplinary Committee of the LFP has imposed three-game suspension on the defender of Evian-Thonon-Gaillard Jonathan Mensah who had strongly disputed a warning from the referee in the game against Lyon,” a statement from the disciplinary committee said.

The Ghanaian was sent off in the 30th minute of the said Ligue 1 game after receiving two yellow cards for allegedly using abusive language on the referee.
