UEFA have handed Austrian forward Marko Arnautovic a suspension following his outburst at Leeds United and North Macedonia player Gjanni Alioski at Euro 2020. Arnautovic has received a one-match ban following the UEFA Appeals Body’s verdict on Wednesday afternoon.

Austria and North Macedonia played out a heated contest in Sunday’s Group C opener in Bucharest.

Arnautovic came off the bench and scored Austria’s third goal in the 89th minute to secure a comfortable 3-1 triumph.

However, it was his celebration that followed that unsurprisingly made headlines and has resulted in this ban.

The former West Ham United star allegedly aimed an anti-Albanian insult towards Egzon Bejtulai, who is of that background.
