The Syrian Football Association has banned Al-Jaish defender Ahmed Al-Saleh for life after kicking, insulting and spitting at a referee.

The former captain of the Syrian national team was sent off after blasting the referee during the game against Al-Wathba on Friday.

The 33-year-old had to be stopped from attacking the referee further by players from both sides.

Al-Saleh continued to insult the referee after the match in the locker room.

In addition to the ban, Al-Saleh was fined 1.5 million Syrian pounds ($597) and his club Al-Jaish fined 3 million pounds for the repeated insults by their fans to the referee.

All penalties are final and not subject to appeal, the Syrian FA said.

Al-Wathba beat Al-Jaish 1-0 in the top-flight clash and led the Syrian top flight by just one point.
