In accordance with the Hyundai A-League Disciplinary Regulations, the matter was referred to the Committee by the Player following the sanction proposed by the independent Match Review Panel (MRP).
The MRP had jurisdiction to consider the incident as the Player was issued with a direct red card in the match.
The Committee determined that the Player must serve a suspension of two (2) matches for committing the offence of “Serious foul play (e.g. when challenging for the ball)” being the Mandatory Match Suspension plus one (1) additional Hyundai A-League match.
As the Player has already served his Mandatory Match Suspension in Brisbane Roar FC’s Round 18 match against Sydney FC, the Player will be ineligible for Brisbane Roar FC’s Round 19 match against Perth Glory, which is scheduled for Saturday, 16 February 2019.
The Player has the right to appeal the determination of the Committee. If the Player intends to do so, he must advise FFA within 7 days of receiving the written determination.
