The suspension ran between 19th February and 10th March. Drysdale has also been warned about his future conduct.

Man Utd Shares Sale

Manchester United's co-chairman Avram Glazer has put five million of his shares in the club up for sale, a sale which would see him pocket something in the region of £70m. The club has paid over £1bn in interest, repayment fees, dividends and other associated costs thanks to the Glazer's leveraged buyout, with gross debt up to £536m, but will not profit in anyway from the proceeds of the sale.
