O's manager Russell Slade reacts to Vincelot ban
ORIENT manager Russell has revealed his disappointment at the FA decision to hand Romain Vincelot a one-game suspension after an Independent Regulatory Commission found him guilty of a breach of FA Rule E3 today.
"We're really disappointed with the decision and feel that Romain has been treated harshly. We believe that there was a genuine misunderstanding between Romain and the referee and at no point did he set out to deliberately get booked," said Slade.
"Though we had the option to appeal we decided against it as sometimes with these things you run the risk of getting a longer ban and we'd rather draw a line under it and move one."
