The striker who pushed the referee was suspended for 8 games.
The English Football Association (FA) said on the 5th (Korean time), “Aleksandar Mitrovic (28) was suspended for 8 games. He also has to pay a fine of 75,000 pounds (about 123 million won).”
Mitrovic started on the 20th in the FA Cup match against Manchester United. He even scored the opening goal in the 5th minute of the second half.
However, in the 27th minute, Mitrovic received a red card for protesting to referee Chris Kavanagh. It was because Fulham striker Willian was sent off for a deliberate handball foul in the penalty box. At that time, Mitrovic could not calm his excitement, such as pushing the referee.
After being ordered to leave, Mitrovic said: “I regret my actions. I let the frustration win me over. My reaction was wrong,” he apologized to his teammates and fans.
I lowered my head, but the FA’s decision was firm. The FA said, “Mitrovic was suspended for three games due to his sending off. Game 3 is an act of violence. The two games were due to charges of using inappropriate profanity and insulting and threatening language.” 메이저놀이터
Even the coach can’t go out on the ground for a while. Fulham manager Marco Silva was suspended for two matches for inappropriate remarks during a post-match press conference following an allegation of throwing a water bottle during the match. Afterwards, coach Silva apologized for his actions, saying, “I apologize to the referee Kavanagh,” but he could not avoid the disciplinary action. Even the Fulham club was fined £40,000 (about 65 million won) for failing to control their players.
Meanwhile, Fulham are currently 10th with 39 points from 28 matches. It is 12 points away from relegation zone AFC Bournemouth (27 points in 29 games). In the next match we will meet West Ham United.
In most of the remaining games, we lost our main striker. Mitrovic was leading the team in scoring with 11 goals in 28 matches.
