David Abraham was suspended on Wednesday for the remainder of this year following the red card he received on Sunday. The captain of Eintracht Frankfurt crashed in the duel with SC Freiburg trainer Christian Streich.
Abraham must also pay a fine of 25,000 euros. Frankfurt immediately announced an appeal against the punishment with the German federal association DFB.
Earlier, Frankfurt already imposed a cap of 35,000 euros on its supplier. Freiburg's Vincenzo Grifo was suspended for three matches because of his part in the rebellion after Abraham's action.
Sunday was completely out of control in the injury time of the game (1-0 for Freiburg). Abraham quickly wanted to grab the ball for a throw-in and Streich ran a little in his way. The 33-year-old Argentinian roughly turned the 54-year-old trainer upside down.
The entire dugout of Freiburg then emptied to attack Abraham. Grifo dealt a blow and received a red card on the recommendation of the VAR.
Abraham misses the competition duels with VfL Wolfsburg, Mainz 05, Hertha BSC, Schalke 04, 1.FC Köln and Paderborn due to his suspension.
