The Competition Committee sanctions Joao Félix with two games of absence

Joao Félix will not be able to play in the next two Atlético de Madrid games. The Competition Committee has thus sanctioned the rojiblanco striker for his expulsion in last Saturday’s match against Athletic and for having thrown the ball into the stands in protest. In this way, Simeone will not be able to count on him for this afternoon’s game against Getafe (19.30) or on Saturday against Alavés (14.00).

As reflected in the minutes drawn up by the referee Gil Manzano, Félix was twice reprimanded for “hitting an opponent with his arm in a reckless manner after having been the object of a foul” and addressing the referee “with his index finger on his temple in sign of disagreement “. Atlético’s allegations against the forward’s sanction have been dismissed by the Competition Committee as they were not able to prove “a manifest error in the arbitration report” drawn up by Manzano.
