HAWA CISSOKO has received a fine and five-match ban after being sent off during a West Ham duel with Aston Villa.
The Irons centre-back was given her marching orders after clashing with Villa defender Sarah Mayling during a WSL fixture.
Cissoko was shown a red card for appearing to strike Mayling after the pair began pushing each other following a duel for the ball.
Moments later this led to a heated confrontation between staff from the benches of both clubs.
This occurred as Cissoko was making her way off the pitch at Villa’s Bescot Stadium home.
And it was followed by Hammers boss Paul Konchesky being sent off during the match which his side won 2-1 on October 15.
The FA have charged both Women’s Super League sides for failing to ensure “their players and officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion”.
And both clubs have been hit with a fine of Â£1000 each.
France ace Cissoko, who was initially given a three-match ban, has been banned for a further two games.
The central defender, who started in West Ham’s opening four league games this term, has also been fined Â£200.
Konchesky, whose team will play Brighton next, was hit with a fine of Â£325.
And Villa staff member Jack Hopkins was fined Â£250.
Last month West Ham revealed Cissoko had been on the receiving end of âracist and abusive messagesâ from a number of social media accounts following the incident.
The club says it has passed âhateful contentâ the player had received to the police.
Cissoko, who shared details of some of the abuse she received, posted a written apology to Mayling, her team-mates, and West Ham fans following her sending off.
The defender said she regretted her actions towards the end of the game and said “there was no excuse”.
