Bengaluru, December 20: FC Goa's Jorge Ortiz has been sentenced to a two-match suspension and a fine of INR 50,000 by the All India Football Federation's (AIFF) Disciplinary Committee.

Accoring to an ISL Media release, Ortiz was found guilty of 'committing serious misconduct' after being charged with 'violent conduct' during FC Goa's Indian Super League (ISL) 2021-22 season's tie against Bengaluru FC on December 11.

The player in his defence apologised and stated 'there was no harm intended' towards Bengaluru FC player Suresh Singh Wangjam, in his written reply to the AIFF Disciplinary Committee.

Later, Devendra Murgaonkar (70') helped his team regain the lead and scored the winner after going down to 10-men.

Martinez fined

Meanwhile, ATK Mohun Bagan physiotherapist Luis Alfonso Redondo Martinez has also been fined by the AIFF Disciplinary Committee to the tune of INR 40,000.

Charged with a similar offence and called upon for a hearing, Martinez has been given a 'stern warning' for his actions. No additional match suspensions were imposed by the Committee.

It may be recalled that Martinez was shown the red card in Match 25 of ISL 2021-22 season at the Pandit Jawaharlal Behru Stadium in Fatoda against Chennaiyin FC.

The match had ended in a 1-1 draw with ATK Mohun Bagan's Liston Colaco's 18th-minute strike being cancelled out by CFC's Vladimir Koman (45') right before half-time.
