All India Football Federation (AIFF) Disciplinary Committee has handed an additional one-game suspension to FC Goa’s Redeem Tlang for his direct red card incident against Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League.
Issuing a verdict on the player’s reply to a show cause notice, the AIFF body found Tlang guilty of intentionally aiming to hurt and injure the opponent.
While the player has apologised in his reply, such intent was completely missing when the opponent player was in pain, according to the committee.
The committee concluded the player committed ‘serious misconduct’, thus, imposing a suspension of an additional game, as per the AIFF Disciplinary Code.
Redeem Tlang now remains ineligible to feature in FC Goa’s next game against Kerala Blasters FC on December 6.
