This is not the first case of indiscipline in the ISL 2021-22 season.

The Spaniard was found guilty of 'committing serious misconduct' after being charged with 'violent conduct' during FC Goa's ISL 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.

Charged with a similar offence to the one of Ortiz, Martinez had been called upon for a hearing, and was given a 'stern warning' for his actions.

No additional match suspensions were though imposed by the Committee. It is worth mentioning that Martinez was shown the red card in Match 25 of ISL 2021-22 season at Fatorda against Chennaiyin FC.
