Balotelli given four-match ban

Mario Balotelli has been given a four-match ban for his red card in what was probably his last game for Olympique Marseille.

The Italy international was sent off for a high tackle from behind during the 1-0 win over Montpellier on May 24.

It was the closing fixture of the season and if Balotelli does play in Ligue 1 again next term, he’ll have to sit out a four-match ban first.

Between OGC Nice and Marseille, he ended the campaign with eight goals and one assist in 25 Ligue 1 games.
