The European football Association for one match suspended midfielder “Shakhtar” Taras Stepanenko.
On Thursday, February 16, Shakhtar, Valencia will play the first match of 1/16 finals of the Europa League against local “salty”. In Spain, the Pitmen will not help main midfielder Taras Stepanenko, who is UEFA suspended for one match.
The disciplinary Committee of UEFA punished Stepanenko for deliberately getting yellow cards in the match of the fifth round of the group stage of the Europa League against Turkish “Konyaspor” (4:0). The Ukrainian came out on the field at the end of the match and especially earned a “yellow card” to skip nothing
decide the match with Braga and the “reset” yellow cards before duels the knockout stages of the Europa League.
A similar trick in the 2010-2011 season was marked by Jose Mourinho, at that time coached real Madrid. Interestingly, in that case UEFA did not disqualify players (Sergio Ramos and Xabi Alonso), and has punished real Madrid a penalty and sent Mourinho a conditional disqualification on two matches.
This season, Taras Stepanenko in all tournaments played 27 matches, scoring four goals, including two accurate shots in the matches of the group stage of the Europa League.
