Schalke goalkeeper Alexander Nubel has been banned for four games for kung-fu foul on Eintracht Frankfurt’s Mijat Gacinovic that earned him a straight red card.
The 23-year-old Germany youth international and Schalke captain charged out of his goal and tried to kick the ball away, but with his leg at full stretch he crashed into the chest of the Frankfurt midfielder in the match on Sunday.
Gacinovic tumbled to the ground and was left with several bruised ribs and cuts to the chest, while the referee sent Nubel off. Schalke eventually won the game 1-0.
Nubel was also fined 12,000 euros over the incident.
