All India Football Federation (AIFF) Disciplinary Committee has handed an additional 1-game suspension to FC Goa’s Redeem Tlang for his direct red card incident against Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League (ISL).
Previously, Tlang was issued a Show Cause notice for his sending-off offence – a high boot challenge on Mumbai's Hernan Santana.
Issuing a verdict on the player’s reply to the 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.
Tlang remains ineligible to feature in FC Goa’s next game against Kerala Blasters FC on December 06.
