Victory assistant gets three-match ban

AAP logoAAP 3/01/2017

Melbourne Victory assistant coach Jean Paul de Marigny has been handed a three-week touchline ban after his expletive-ridden tirade directed towards the Newcastle Jets bench during Monday night's A-League clash.

De Marigny, who'd only just returned from another sideline ban of a week, was seemingly displeased with the Jets' physical style of play during the encounter won by the Victory 4-2.

Victory were up 2-0 in the 36th minute when de Marigny unloaded on Jets coach Mark Jones.

The A-League's match review panel determined that de Marigny committed the offence of 'Use of offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures.'

While the standard sanction is one match, de Marigny was handed an extra two matches on top.

He has until 12pm (AEDT) on Wednesday to appeal the ban.
