Rayo Majadahonda goalkeeper Cheikh Sarr has been handed a two-match ban after being sent off in Saturday’s game at Sestao River for confronting fans who had racially insulted him.

Sestao, who were leading 2-1 before the game was abandoned, have been awarded a 3-0 win. However, the club has been handed a two-match stadium closure and a €6001 fine after the disciplinary committee substantiated there was racially discriminatory behaviour directed at Sarr by the home fans.

Senegalese-born Sarr was shown a red card in the 84th minute of his team’s third-division league match. Majadahonda refused to continue the game following Sarr’s red card.

Majadahonda have been deducted an additional three points and fined €3,006 for walking off in response to the racial abuse.

The Spanish Football Federation’s (RFEF) disciplinary committee on Wednesday punished Sarr for a “minor infraction of conduct contrary to good sporting order,” noting that the confrontation came “in the context of unacceptable personal aggression.”

Sestao denied in a statement that there had been any racist chants directed at any players during the encounter but reiterated their firm commitment in the fight against racism and xenophobia.
