Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry was suspended one game by England’s Football Association for verbal abuse of a match official.

Barry admitted to using abusive and/or insulting words following City’s 3-2 loss to rival Manchester United four days ago, the F.A. said in a statement on its website. The defeat left the defending Premier League soccer champion in second place, six points behind United.

Barry, who was also fined 8,000 pounds ($13,000), and City both said on the club’s website they “reluctantly” accepted the punishment. Barry will miss this weekend’s match against Newcastle and will be available for a game against Reading on Dec. 22, the club said.
