An Independent Regulatory Commission has today released the written reasons in the case of The FA versus Nicolas Anelka.
Both parties have seven days to consider any appeals, ending on Thursday 13 March 2014.
The Independent Regulatory Commission had previously found an aggravated breach of FA Rule E3 against Nicolas Anelka proven and issued a five-match suspension, a fine of £80,000, and that the player be ordered to complete a compulsory education course.
It follows his controversial 'quenelle' gesture in a match against West Ham in December. The player has always denied it was an anti-semitic gesture, instead saying it was a show of solidarity with a banned French comedian.
A new campaign, highlighting the dangers of bringing flares and smoke bombs into football grounds, claims children as young as eight have been used to smuggle the pyrotechnic devices into stadiums.
The Premier League, Football League and the FA are working in unison in light of the growing number of incidents in recent months. Earlier this year, a 15-year-old boy suffered lung damage from a smoke bomb thrown during Wigan Athletic's match against Aston Villa.
The Premier League said:
"A disturbing element of increased pyrotechnics has been the involvement of children, whereby it is not uncommon for 'mules' to bring the pyrotechnics into a ground on behalf of others."
Fireworks are illegal at football matches, but more recently a linesman was struck by a smoke-bomb during Tottenham Hotspur's encounter at Aston Villa in October this season.
Events celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Football Association are taking place across the region today.
Workshops and training sessions are being held at the FA's training base at St George's Park in Burton-upon-Trent, dealing with all aspects of the game, including women's football, disability football, refereeing and coaching.
Stoke City is also celebrating its 150th birthday, with fans being given the opportunity to meet Victorian footballers and learn about how the game was playing in 1863.
