Urinate 703x422

The Mansfield player was banned and fined for peeing at the back of a stand

Mansfield manager Adam Murray said he was disappointed by the length of the ban.

English fourth division footballer Adi Yussuf was banned for five games and fined £700 (902 euros) on Friday after being found guilty of urinating at the back of a stand during a game.

The incident happened as his club Mansfield were playing at Plymouth on February 13 as 23-year-old Yussuf was warming up as a substitute.

"Adi Yussuf has been suspended from all domestic club football for five first team competitive matches and fined £700 after he admitted an FA misconduct charge," said a Football Association statement.

Mansfield manager Adam Murray said he was disappointed by the length of the ban.

"Whilst the club does not, in any way, condone the isolated 'act', it should be borne in mind that Adi has stated that he was given alleged guidance by both a steward and unused substitutes from Plymouth Argyle as to where to perform this act, which was at the back of the stand and out of public view," he said.

"Furthermore, the toilets at this ground (Home Park in Plymouth) are a fair distance away (in the home dressing room)."
