KAS Eupen midfielder Eric Ocansey has been handed a four-match ban and fined € 4,000 for his sending last week against Sporting Charleroi for punching an opponent.

His punishment was announced by the Belgian Football Union's Litigation Committee (URBSFA) after a sitting on Tuesday.

Ocansey extended his hand to punch an opponent while on the attack and the referee Nicolas Laforge consulted the VAR to issue a straight red card for his violent misconduct.

The 20-year-old will miss the matches against Zulte-Waregem, Gent, Royal Excel Mouscron and Standard Liège.

He will return in September when Eupen visit Waasland-Beveren.
