Lazio defender Luiz Felipe has received a €5,000 fine and one-match suspension following his red card against Inter.
As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero yesterday, the 24-year-old Brazilian defender has been fined and suspended for one match after receiving a red card for hugging Nerazzurri striker Joaquin Correa from behind following the full-time whistle in Sunday’s match.
Lazio won the match 3-1 and Luiz Felipe went over to celebrate with his friend and former teammate, but the Inter striker wasn’t impressed and understandably shook him off. This caused a small commotion between the two sides and left Luiz Felipe in tears.
The sending-off was the 24-year-old Brazilian defender’s first red card ever in his career, making it an extra bitter pill to swallow.
