Veteran Senegalese striker Djiby Fall
has certainly made a name for himself since joining the USL's FC Cincinnati. In its first home game, which drew a league record crowd for a home opener,
Djiby scored four goals.
But two games later, Louisville City head coach James O'Connor
accused Djiby of biting one of his players, midfielder Niall McCabe
, and the USL
disciplinary panel suspended the league's leading scorer (six goals) for five games and fined him an undisclosed amount.
Referee Mark Kadlecik
issued Djiby a red card in the
87th minute of Saturday's match that ended in a 1-1 tie. The red card earned Djiby an additional one-game suspension and fine.
Djiby, 32, was signed as an offseason replacement for 2016
USL Most Valuable Player Sean Okoli
. He moved to France at the age of 18 to join Auxerre's academy. He never played for its first team but later spent time at 11 clubs in nine different
countries before moving to the USL.
