The Foxes may be only one game away from winning the Premier League title, but Jamie Vardy won’t be a part of it as the Leicester City striker has been banned from the club’s away match with Manchester United next Sunday.
According to NBC Sports, Vardy has been slapped with an additional one-game ban for improper conduct directed towards referee Jonathan Moss in Leicester’s 2-2 draw with West Ham United in Matchday 34.
Vardy allegedly called Moss a ‘c**t’ after being sent off for his second yellow card of the match, and was subsequently banned from Leicester’s following game – 4-0 trouncing of Swansea City at the King Power Stadium.
If the Foxes win on Sunday, they will clinch the league. However, a draw or a loss will keep the door open for Tottenham Hotspur.
The Leicester City striker is the Premier League’s No. 2 leading scorer with 22 goals on the season and was recently named to the PFA Team of the Year while teammate Riyad Mahrez won PFA Player of the Year.
