It was confirmed in October that the FA's Disciplinary Panel had issued a charge against Manny for an incident which took place during his time with Tranmere Rovers, and the panel has now made a ruling.

Monthé, who has formed a vital part of the backline since joining the Saddlers in the summer, is alleged to have breached FA Rule E3.1, with the breach constituting an "Aggravated Breach", which is defined in FA Rule E3.2, as the language included a reference, whether express or implied, to sexual orientation.

In making their ruling, the FA confirms; Emmanuel Monthé has been suspended for Walsall FC’s next seven matches, fined £1,200 and ordered to complete a mandatory education programme for a breach of FA Rule E3.2 that occurred while he was playing for Tranmere Rovers FC in an EFL League Two match against Forest Green Rovers FC on Saturday, 1st May 2021.

The FA charged the defender for allegedly using abusive and/or insulting words towards a Forest Green Rovers FC player in the ninth minute of this match, which is contrary to FA Rule E3.1, and also alleged that this constitutes an “aggravated breach”, as defined in FA Rule E3.2, because it included a reference to sexual orientation.

Emmanuel Monthe denied the charge but an independent Regulatory Commission found it to be proven and imposed these sanctions during a subsequent hearing. The written reasons for these decisions will be published in due course.
