Granada are going to be without the services of their Nigerian import Uche Agbo after he was given a 5 match ban for punching an opponent.

The incident happened last weekend with the B team of Granada against Recreativo de Huelva when he was sent off in the 89 minutes and on his way out of the pitch he punched an opponent.

Spanish Football Federation Competition commitee handed him the five match ban that will also rule him out of the main team games after reviewing the referee’s report.

Agbo is slowly gaining a reputation of a midfielder who picks up cards as he has been booked 10 times for the B team and three times for the main team.

His absence will be felt the more by the B team where the 20 year old has made 22 appearances with 2 goals to his name than with the first team where he has played just 6 games with no goal to his name.
