LUFC Silly boy Gradel hit with extra match ban
Leeds United midfielder Max Gradel has been handed an additional one match ban following incidents after his dismissal during the final game of the season against Bristol Rovers.
Gradel received an automatic three-match ban for violent conduct when he stamped on Bristol Rovers defender Daniel Jones.
He has picked up the additional game for breaching rule E3 for failing to leave the pitch after his dismissal.
Gradel had to be restrained by both Jermaine Beckford and Mike Doyle after his dismissal as he tried to get at the referee.
Luckily for him, his moment of madness didn`t cost Leeds promotion as the other ten players pulled together to record a 2-1 victory and ensure promotion.
Gradel will now sit out the first four games of the 2010/11 season.
Davide Somma at the start of next season joins him on the sidelines; he also picked up a three-match suspension for violent conduct after being dismissed in his final loan game for Lincoln City at Macclesfield Town.
