Ghana's Emmanuel Frimpong brands Russian FA's decision to ban him for two matches as a joke

Ghana international Emmanuel Frimpong has branded the Russian FA's decision to ban him for two matches following his reaction to a racist chant as a joke.

The former Arsenal midfielder who now plays for FC Ufa in the Russian league reacted with his middle finger to fans who were racially abusing him during a league game against Spartak Moscow in the Russian league opener.

The tough tackling midfielder received a two match ban for his actions whiles Spartak Moscow surprisingly escaped punishment in a decision that Frimpong brands as beyond a joke.

'For the Russian FA to say they didn’t hear or see any evidence of racism is beyond a joke,' Frimpong said

FIFA has official quizzed the Russian FA to explain the reason behind punishing only Frimpong for his reaction but letting Spartak Moscow off blame.
