Leeds goalkeeper Kiko Casilla was handed an eight-game ban by the Football Association after they found him guilty of shouting 'you f***ing n*****' when punching a corner clear in a game against Charlton.  

Following a five month investigation into allegations he called Charlton striker Jonathan Leko the N-word, the FA published their written reasons behind the ban on Tuesday.

Casilla's position was that 'he was unaware of the existence' of the N-word prior to the investigation. This stance was rejected by the FA as they determined he did know the word and understood the meaning and that it was a 'racial insult'.
