Bayern Munich plans to appeal 3-match ban for defender Jerome Boateng
FRANKFURT, Germany -- Bayern Munich says it plans to appeal against the three-match ban imposed on defender Jerome Boateng.
Boateng was sent off early in Bayern's 1-1 draw with Schalke on Tuesday for bringing down Sydney Sam.
The German Football Federation imposed a three-match ban but there will now be a hearing following Bayern's appeal.
If the ban is upheld, Boateng would miss matches against Stuttgart, Paderborn and Hamburger SV.
