The Finland FA has handed a six-match ban to Nigerian striker Gbolahan Salami.

Salami was handed a straight red card deep into injury time of his side KuPS’s 2-1 loss at home to Mariehamn on June 4.

The Nigerian vehemently protested a disallowed goal, directing his anger at referee Jani Laakosen.

Though initially given a mandatory two-match ban for the red card, a Disciplinary Committee of the FA has since extended the sanction to six matches.

This was after Salami admitted his guilt in a hearing into the incident.

As a result, the Nigerian (who has already sat out two matches) will now miss KuPS’s upcoming fixtures against Ilves, PS Kemi, HIFK and Lahti.
