The 28-year-old midfielder appeared to direct abusive language towards referee Mike Dean after he was shown a straight red card in Leicester’s 5-0 league defeat at Crystal Palace last month.

The FA said Albrighton had also been fined 25,000 pounds ($33,877) following the Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Tuesday.

Albrighton will miss Leicester’s home league match against Arsenal on Wednesday, as well as a trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
