LONDON, April 22 – Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has accepted a charge of improper conduct following his sending off against West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday.
The England international, who has been named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year, opened the scoring in the 2-2 draw, but was sent for an early shower after picking up his second yellow card for an alleged act of simulation in the second half of the clash.
The 29-year-old reacted angrily to referee Jon Moss’ decision not to award a penalty, and the league’s governing body are now expected to add an extra game to his automatic one-match suspension.
As such, Vardy is likely to miss title-chasing Leicester’s upcoming clashes with Swansea City and Champions League hopefuls Manchester United.
Vardy will be hoping to add to his 22 goals this season when he returns for the Foxes’ last two games of the campaign, at home to Everton and away to Chelsea.
