The English Football Association (FA) has suspended Manchester City's Shaun Wright-Phillips for three league games after finding him guilty of violent conduct. The incident relates to the Manchester City winger's altercation with Stoke City's Rory Delap during the Eastlands club's 1-0 defeat at the Britannia Stadium on Jan 31. Delap reacted angrily to a sliding challenge by Wright-Phillips on teammate Matthew Etherington by lashing out at the England international, which earned the Republic of Ireland midfielder a red card. The referee Martin Atkinson did not see all of the altercation but, after watching video footage, informed the FA he would have shown Wright-Phillips a red card for violent conduct had he spotted the incident. Wright-Phillips will therefore miss City's next three Barclays Premier League matches all away from home at Portsmouth on Saturday, against Liverpool on February 22 and at West Ham on March 1. He will, however, be available for the two-legged Uefa Cup last-32 encounter with FC Copenhagen later this month.
