The defender became the first player to be charged under a new retrospective action scheme.

The 30 year old appeared to stamp on Manchester United’s Adnan Januzaj in Fulham’s 3-1 loss, but match officials did not see the incident.

Under the new rules, a three-man panel of former elite referees looked at the incident and advised Riether committed an act of violent conduct.
