Evans handed six-game ban over spitting incident

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans will serve a six-game ban for spitting at Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse, despite protesting his innocence.

The pair were engaged in an ugly altercation in the midweek clash at St James' Park, but while Cisse accepted the charge Evans denied it - though an independent Football Association panel has rejected his appeal.

The story is too old to be commented.
