Match of the Day pundit Jermaine Jenas calls on Fulham star to be banned for three games

Jermaine Jenas has called on the Football Association to take action over divers.

The former Tottenham and Newcastle United midfielder was in the Match of the Day studio and was disgusted with what he witness during the Fulham versus Bournemouth game.

After Bournemouth opened the scoring from the penalty spot, Aboubakar Kamara went down under a challenge from Asmir Begovic at the other end, trying to earn his side a spot-kick.

The only thing he earned though, was a yellow card, for simulation, with the replays showing he threw himself to the floor with no contact from the Cherries keeper whatsoever.

Jenas believes Kamara, and others, should not be booked, but should be banned instead.

He said: “We’re just a bit sick of it now, this whole thing. We’ve said it a million times on this show, I think we all have as pundits, they get a yellow card and that takes away the action of being able to ban a player.




“If you’re going to kick it out ban him for three games and then it stops.”

Jenas also had some strong words for the frontman after he kicked the ball away petulantly late on and was lucky not to be sent off.

Jenas added: “This was quite potent for me. When you’re already on a yellow card this screams indiscipline to me, is this something that’s infiltrating the team? Is this why they’re conceding so many goals because this can’t be happening.

“When your team’s struggling already and you’re kicking the ball away looking to get sent off, it was poor.”
