Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has been suspended for three matches for elbowing West Ham’s Winston Reid during Saturday’s Premier League clash.
The ban begins with immediate effect after the Germany captain accepted an FA charge for violent conduct. The incident was not seen by the match officials but was caught on video.
Schweinsteiger caught Reid in the throat as the players battled for position from a first-half free-kick during the 0-0 draw.
He will miss the forthcoming Premier League games against Bournemouth, Norwich City and Stoke City.
