Disciplinary Report: Apertura 2019 Week 9

The Disciplinary Committee has suspended seven players and one coach and fined a player in the aftermath of this weekend’s Jornada 9 games.

The standout suspension goes to Miguel Layún of Monterrey, who was given a two-game suspension for violent conduct.

The other six players were all suspended for one game: Francisco Córdova of América, José Esquivel of FC Juárez, Francisco Acuña of Puebla, and Aldo Cruz of Tijuana all for serious foul play, and Luis Quiñones of Tigres UANL and Jorge Segura of Atlas for receiving two yellow cards in the same game.

Ricardo Ferretti, coach of Tigres, was given a one-game suspension for receiving two yellow cards for a lack of respect for the referee crew.

Finally, Ernesto Alexis Vega of Chivas de Guadalajara was fined for violating Article 26 of the Regulations for Sanctions, which states “players who celebrate a goal or winning a game with behavior, gestures, or expressions, either towards the opponent or the crowd, that are excessive, inappropriate, obscene, offensive, rude, mocking, or truly unsporting, and that weren’t seen by the referee, will be sanctioned with a fine.”
