According to the NUFC official site, Tiote will be riding pine to avoid the risk of a three match ban.
It's fairly obvious that it's something we need to correct next year. I've talked to him about it this week and I'll talk to him before he goes away for the summer because you can't take 14 bookings in a season.
Something to work on indeed, but let's try and work on it without dulling his aggresiniff.
