FC Goa's Edu Bedia Show Caused by AIFF Disciplinary Committee

FC Goa captain Edu Bedia has been issued a Show Cause Notice by All India Football Federation (AIFF) Disciplinary Committee for an injury-time incident during their match against Chennaiyin FC played on Saturday 13th February at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim.

Bedia was reported of 'unsporting behaviour towards CFC player Deepak Tangri.' The Committee has given the Spaniard time till 17th February to submit a reply.

The player, who was shown a yellow card for the offence, is suspended for FC Goa's next assignment against Odisha FC on Wednesday, after picking his fourth caution of the season.

The suspension for the Gaurs captain comes at a critical juncture in the side’s Indian Super League (ISL) campaign. Juan Ferrando’s men are currently 4th on the points’ table, just ahead of Hyderabad FC on goal difference. They have three matches left and considering the form that NorthEast United and the Nizams have been showing, they might need to take maximum points from their remaining games to ensure smooth sailing into the playoff spots.

With Bengaluru FC also in the fray following last night’s inspirational victory over Mumbai City, their task might just have become even trickier. In this scenario, they will be hoping that Bedia doesn’t incur any additional punishment for his clash with Deepak Tangri during Saturday’s match.
