Mexican Referee Facing 12-Match Ban For Kneeing Player

Fernando Hernandez

The Mexican football federation has suspended referee Fernando Hernandez for 12 matches after he kneed Leon midfielder Lucas Romero in the groin during a confrontation in America's match against Leon.

Romero was also suspended for two matches after he angrily demanded a VAR review following an equaliser from America.

Romero stated after the match that he was not calling for Hernandez to be punished, and it was all a misunderstanding, and he only asked for respect on the pitch.

Hernandez apologised for his reaction and said he would abide by the decision of the Disciplinary Commission.

The match was heated, with several brawls breaking out, and both coaches, Fernando Ortiz and Nicolas Larcamon, were involved in a confrontation.

Ortiz and Larcamon were also handed two-match bans after both were given red cards during the game.

The incident has sparked controversy in the football community, with many questioning the behaviour of the players and the referees on the pitch.
