The 25-year-old was sent a show cause notice by the committee on November 28.
All India Football Federation (AIFF) Disciplinary Committee has handed an additional one-game suspension to FC Goa attacker Redeem Tlang for his direct red card incident against Mumbai City FC in the Hero Indian Super League.
Issuing a verdict on the player’s reply to a show cause notice, the AIFF body found Redeem 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.
The AIFF Disciplinary Committee had issued a show cause notice to Redeem Tlang on November 28, for his direct red card for a high boot on Mumbai City FC’s Hernan Santana, which was referred to the AIFF body. “Upon analysing the video, the Disciplinary Committee concluded it was a serious foul play – a tackle that endangered the safety of an opponent,” the AIFF advisory of the show cause notice read.
Redeem Tlang was suspended for FC Goa’s match against NorthEast United on November 30 due to his suspension received against the Islanders. Following the latest verdict, the winger will remain ineligible to feature in one more game, against Kerala Blasters on December 6.
