Mikel admitted an FA charge following an incident in the match official’s changing room at the end of the game where he reportedly barged in and confronted referee Mark Clattenburg over allegations that he called him a ‘Monkey.’

In a personal hearing on Thursday the FA’s Independent Regulatory Commission accepted that the player had genuinely believed the referee had racially abused him.

“But for that factor the suspension would have been significantly longer,” the FA said in a statement.

The FA has investigated the allegation against Clattenburg and found that there was no case for him to answer.
