Ortiz was found guilty of 'committing serious misconduct' after being charged with 'violent conduct' in FC Goa's 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) game against Bengaluru FC on Saturday, 11th December.

The player in his defence apologized and stated 'there was no harm intended' towards Bengaluru FC midfielder Suresh Singh Wangjam, in his written reply to the Committee. The AIFF body called upon for an additional hearing and passed their verdict on Sunday, 19th December.
