Cisse Accepts FA Charge

Written by Newcastle Utd

Newcastle United and Papiss Cisse have accepted an FA charge following an incident with Jonny Evans


Newcastle United and Papiss Cisse have this evening accepted an FA charge in relation to the incident between Cisse and Manchester United defender Jonny Evans, which took place during the clubs' Barclays Premier League match on Wednesday, 4th March.

Managing director Lee Charnley said: "Both ourselves and Papiss agree that this kind of behaviour is not acceptable.

"In life, when you do something wrong you have to front up, admit your mistakes and accept the punishment. Papiss was proactive this morning in making a full and heartfelt apology, which he did in advance of any notification from the FA regarding this charge.

"This was something he felt strongly about and we fully support him in quickly accepting the charge.

"Papiss is known to many of our region's schools, community groups and junior football teams for his involvement in the work of the Newcastle United Foundation.

"He has this evening expressed to us his strong desire to engage in additional community activities during the period of his ban.

"He is particularly keen to use his position as a role model to encourage young and influential fans to engage in sport and learn lessons about the importance of fair play and personal conduct."
