Atletico de Kolkata head coach Jose Molina was today suspended for one match of Indian Super League football for repeatedly protesting against referee’s decisions in his side’s match against Mumbai City FC in Kolkata.

Molina was sent off from the field of play and immediate surrounds by the match referee in the 90+1 minute of the match which ATK lost 0-1 last night.

“Coach Molina was sent off from the field of play and immediate surrounds by the Match Referee during 90+1 minute of the game during Hero ISL Match 23 (25th October 2016, Atletico de Kolkata vs Mumbai City FC) for repeatedly protesting against referee’s decisions,” the ISL said in a statement.

“Additionally, AIFF Disciplinary Code (Article 19) states that an expulsion automatically incurs suspension from the team’s subsequent match,” it added.
