Akaminko gets three-match ban

Ghana defender Jerry Akaminko has been slapped with a three-match ban and a fine for a reckless tackle on an opponent in a Cup game.
The Eskisehirspor rearguard received a 90th minute red card for an “intentional foul” in the game against Akhisar on Tuesday.
The Turkey Football Federation’s Disciplinary Board gave the 25-year-old a three-match ban and fined him €4,000 (13,000 Turkish lira) for that ruthless tackle on an opponent.
The hosts lost 0-2 to Akhisar at the Ataturk Stadium.
