Man City striker Adebayor facing ban over goal celebration

Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor is likely to face separate improper conduct charges and a SIX-MATCH ban for his behaviour during the defeat of Arsenal.

Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor is likely to face separate improper conduct charges and a SIX-MATCH ban for his behaviour during the defeat of Arsenal.

In 2006, Gary Neville was suspended for two games and fined £5,000 after he celebrated a late winner for Manchester United in front of visiting Liverpool supporters.

One steward was taken to hospital and fans were injured as trouble flared after Adebayor taunted the visitors at Eastlands.

FA chief executive Ian Watmore said: "I was at the game so I saw it with my own eyes.

"I was pretty unimpressed because the problems between the Arsenal fans and Adebayor are well documented but he still ran the whole length of the field to celebrate."
