BALOTELLI GIVEN TWO-GAME BAN FOR DIVING

The future of the Italy international remains in doubt, but the forward has been given a two-match Ligue 1 ban.

Mario Balotelli will be banned for the first two matches of the new Ligue 1 season – if the Italy international remains in French football.

The Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) confirmed on Thursday that Balotelli has been hit with a two-match suspension.

Balotelli was given the ban after the LFP ruled he dived in a match against Caen, leading to Ismael Diomande being sent off.
