Taiwo banned for farewell game

Marseille full-back Taye Taiwo will be deprived of a farewell to the club's fans after he was suspended for their Ligue 1 clash with Valenciennes.

The Nigeria international was charged along with team-mate Stephane Mbia after the pair celebrated the Coupe de la Ligue final win over Montpellier - in which Taiwo scored the only goal - by singing an anti-Paris St Germain song.

Taiwo, who had the microphone at the time, was hit with a one-match ban with a further two games suspended, in addition to a fine of €20,000.

The ban comes into force on Monday, meaning he will be available for Sunday's game at Lorient but will miss the home game against Valenciennes - which would have been his final appearance at the Stade Velodrome before a summer move to AC Milan. Taiwo has spent six years with OM.

Mbia was given a two-match suspended ban and a €10,000 fine.
