The Disciplinary Committee has released the list of pending sanctions for the Clausura 2017 season, and 10 players, two coaches, and an assistant coach are set to be sidelined for at least the first game of the new season.
The most-affected team is Puebla, with three players suspended for Jornada 1: Jerónimo Amione, Patricio Araujo, and Francisco Torres.
The other team with multiple suspended players is reigning champions Tigres UANL, who will be without Jorge Torres Nilo for Jornada 1 and José Arturo Rivas for Jornadas 1 and 2.
Cruz Azul’s Jonathan Cristaldo, León’s Andrés Andrade, Toluca’s Rubens Sambueza, and Santos Laguna’s Ventura Alvarado round out the list of sidelined players.
In terms of technical staff, Tijuana will be without both coach Miguel Herrera and assistant coach Diego Ramírez for their Jornada 1 match.
Finally, Juninho, who moved to the Chicago Fire from Tijuana this offseason, will have a one-game suspension to serve if he returns to Liga MX. Likewise, Tomás Boy, who was let go as coach of Cruz Azul, has one game left of a two-game suspension and will serve that if he takes charge of another Liga MX team.
