Ramires has been banned for four games

Chelsea midfielder Ramires has accepted a charge of violent conduct following an off-the-ball incident that was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.

The incident occurred during Chelsea’s Premier League fixture against Sunderland at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 19 April.

Ramires receives a four match ban which will start with immediate effect.

The ban includes three games for this offence plus an additional game for his sending off at Villa Park last month.
