MONCHENGLADBACH, Germany -- Monchengladbach striker Raul Bobadilla was given a five-match suspension by the DFB disciplinary board on Wednesday after he was sent off in his team's 2-1 defeat against Hannover over the weekend.

Bobadilla received a red card in the 43rd minute for kicking Hannover's Sergio Pinto, and both Bobadilla and Monchengladbach have decided not to appeal the league's decision.

The club has also taken action against Bobadilla, fining the Argentine $65,000 and ordering him to train with the reserves until Christmas.
