Arminia Bielefeld star Delron Buckley has been hit with a six-week ban.Arminia Bielefeld star Delron Buckley has been hit with a six-week ban for an incident in the German Cup semi-final.
South Africa international Buckley pushed referee Markus Merk in a cup match against Bayern Munich and has been punished for his actions.
Bayern won the match 2-0, and it was during a protest after their second goal that Buckley was dismissed.
It came from a controversial penalty awarded when Claudio Pizarro appeared to have been fairly dispossessed.
Buckley shoved Merk and his punishment is an early end to his season - although the ban does not apply to international matches.
