George Boyd has been banned

George Boyd has been banned

First published in Sport

Hull winger George Boyd will serve an immediate three-match ban after a Football Association charge against him for spitting at Joe Hart was proven.

The 28-year-old spat at Manchester City goalkeeper Hart during last Saturday's Premier League match at the KC Stadium - and there can be fewer worse things to do on the football field.

The FA are bang on the money with their action – and they should also come down hard on players who spit in general. Seriously, there is no need for it. It’s just disgusting.
