Kiko Casilla has been found guilty of racial abuse, resulting in an eight match ban. The Leeds keeper had several supporting parties, including former Leeds striker, Eddie Nketiah and representatives from Real Madrid, who provided a character profile.
However, the FA have come to a conclusion to suspend Casilla following an incident against Charlton involving Jonathan Leko and Casilla.
Due to a lack of information, it is very difficult to give opinions on the ban or the incident, but more information including the incident report, is expected next week.
Illian Meslier is expected to take the reigns between the sticks, following an impressive showing against Arsenal in the FA Cup, with Elia Caprile is expected to appear on the bench for the first time since signing in January from Chievo.
Casilla has also received a £60,000 fine and ordered to undergo “face to face” education. FA plans to release written reasons (giving full details of the hearing and what was alleged to have been said) next week. #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHay_) February 28, 2020
Phil Hay’s tweet above also tells us that Casilla has been fined £60,000 and will be put on some kind of course/education, which will likely be on racism and proper conduct and communication.
