Mohamed Salah handed one-match suspension

Salah red card
has received a one-match suspension after picking up a red card in Roma’s 2-1 win over his former club in Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Salah, who scored the first goal in Roma’s win, was sent off the field in the 87th minute after receiving a red card. He received two yellows in the span of few seconds as he was booked for a foul against Facundo Roncaglia, before receiving the second yellow for showing dissent.

The Lega Serie A confirmed that the Egyptian winger will be suspended for one match, which means he’ll miss Roma’s next game against Udinese on Wednesday.

Manager Rudi Garcia said to Premium Sport that he was surprised by the referee’s decision, “The only negative point [for Salah] was the red card, which I think was very harsh. True, he didn’t have to make that gesture, but he does not even speak Italian. He didn’t say anything.”

Youssef Wael is a massive Al Ahly and Manchester United supporter from Cairo, Egypt. One of the few Egyptians who never really wanted to have a career in football, just played it as a hobby. Wael also played squash for 7 years.
