What trouble is coming for Atlas, who cannot rely on midfielder Aldo Rocha for the next league games because the Disciplinary Commission reported that he must serve a three-game suspension for the red card that he saw in the battle against Mazatlán. .
The Disciplinary Department announced that the Mexican soccer player was suspended for one game for seeing a red card and also received a two-game suspension for “grossly insulting the officials in the game.” A very costly loss to close out the tournament.
What did Aldo Rocha do?
In the game Atlas lost against Mazatlán at the Jalisco Stadium on Matchday 13, the midfielder was sent off. It was the 90th minute when the red and black player kicked José Madueña when he ran with the ball in the midfield.
Referee Marco Ortiz pointed out the foul and showed him the yellow card. This is the second yellow for the player and he must see red. The problem was that Rocha started to complain to the center judge. In the pictures you can still see how the referee asked him to repeat what he said and Rocha continued his claims.
Que pensará la gente de @AtlasFC después de ver que su capitán el bravucón de Aldo Rocha insulta el árbitro Marco Ortiz después de ser expulsado correctamente? No jugará mínimo tres semanas pero cobrara su sueldo cómodamente al 100% pic.twitter.com/TehYOrcZUP
