Eysseric handed 11-match suspension

Nice midfielder Valentin Eysseric has been suspended for the remainder of the season following his horror leg-breaking tackle on Jeremy Clement of St Etienne last weekend.

Eysseric was shown a straight red card following the incident, which left Clement with a fractured fibula. The Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) subsequently handed Eysseric an 11-match ban on Thursday evening, ruling him out of the rest of the campaign.

"Valentin Eysseric, who was sent off at St Etienne last weekend, was suspended for 11 games by the French Professional League's (LFP) disciplinary committee," a Nice statement read. "The player will therefore not play again this season."

Clement, 28, faces up to six months of rehabilitation after undergoing successful surgery on his leg. Eysseric has apologised for his actions and already confirmed he would not appeal the punishment handed down by the LFP.

In quotes reported by L'Equipe, Eysseric said: "I explained my feelings and my actions. They all listened. I have nothing to say about the penalty, it is their decision."
