Kossie Banned for 4 Matches

The FFA Disciplinary board has handed John Kosmina, coach of Adelaide United, a 6 match touchline ban, with two games suspended.

Sadly, i think this is a bit of an overreaction. Yes Kossie did wrong by grabbing Muscat by the throat. Yes he deserved to be punished. And yes, his standing as Socceroos Assistant coach means he is under more scrutiny than others perhaps. But 4 matches in the middle of the season, when the guy that instigated the whole thing was completely let off, i think is harsh.

I wonder what punishment Adelaide will bring down on him, as they have been talking about their own sanctions as well. We shall see.
