Agency : The English Football Association (FA) panel handed Edinson Cavani a three-match suspension despite acknowledging the Manchester United striker was not being deliberately racist and had not known his language on social media was offensive. Uruguay striker Cavani was last week banned for three games and fined 100,000 pounds (US$136,000) for posting an Instagram message to a friend with what the FA decided to be a racist term after his Manchester United side's 3-2 win over Southampton on Nov 29. The full findings of the FA regulatory commission were published on Thursday, explaining why Cavani was handed a minimum suspension under FA Rule E3.1. "The commission were satisfied that the player wrote his reply in affectionate appreciation of a message from his Uruguayan friend and that it was not designed or intended to be racist or offensive either to his friend or others reading the content of the Instagram post," the FA commission said.
