Newcastle United star charged with two breaches of FA rules – Official statement

Newcastle United winger Allan Saint-Maximin has been charged by the FA for ‘two breaches of the FA’s Kit and Advertising Regulations’ in the games against Wolves and Leicester last month.

The FA have released a statement citing a ‘headband with an established mark or logo of a clothing manufacturer’ as the reason for the charge.

The 25-year-old has often sported a headband during games but has never previously been punished by the FA as he has been told to cover up any logos to avoid this sort of thing from happening.

Premier League players are allowed to wear headbands providing they are the same colour as their kit and do not have any form of external branding on them.

However, the talented Frenchman had worn a black and gold Louis Vuitton headband in the two league games in question and is now facing punishment – he has until the 19th of May to respond.
