BRI Liga 1 Response of Persebaya Coach to Red Card
Rancakmedia.com – Persebaya Surabaya not only lost against Bhayangkara FC in Week 20 of BRI Liga 1 2021/2022, Tuesday (18/1/2021) night for the City of Heroes squad, they were also forced to leave the team.
The player in question is Ricky Kambuaya. After receiving a red card in 90+3 minutes, the Sorong midfielder had to rinse his muddy kit immediately.
Ricky received a second yellow card for a violation by the referee of Awan Setho Raharjo while trying to control the ball. His foot hit the midriff of the Bhayangkara FC goalkeeper.
Persebaya coach, Aji Santoso, regretted the red card. However, he considered that there was no intentional element in the violation committed by Ricky Kambuaya.
"It's quite unfortunate that Kambuaya got a red card, the first time he got a yellow card, he should have been more careful," said Aji Santoso in a press conference.
"But maybe it was in his condition that he was running fast, so it was difficult to brake him," Aji added.
