Uruguay’s star fears a 15-game suspension after elbowing a referee in the head

December 5, 2022

Jose Gimenez, a star for Uruguay, might receive a severe 15-game suspension after he appeared to elbow a referee following his country’s World Cup defeat.


The South American team was considered a dark horse for the World Cup in Qatar and defeated Ghana in their final group match, but they could not advance to the knockout round.


South Korea overcame a deficit to defeat Portugal and surpass Uruguay into the second position to advance to the round of 16.


Edinson Cavani slammed a TV screen on his way down the tunnel, Luis Suarez was seen sobbing on the bench, and a new video has surfaced that puts Gimenez in hot water.


Gimenez was seen hitting a FIFA official with an elbow to the back of his head while trying to confront referee Daniel Siebert about his decision not to give Cavani a late penalty.


The Atletico Madrid player had to be restrained and controlled by his teammates, and according to Mundo Deportivo, he may now face a 15-game suspension.


After the fight, Gimenez yelled at the camera, “They [the referees] are all a couple of crooks, these sons of b***hes.” “Sure, record me—B***h of a son.


Uncertainty surrounds whether that suspension would affect domestic football, which would be a significant setback for Atletico Madrid.


Due to their responses to the outcome, Cavani and Suarez may also be disciplined by FIFA.


Cavani should have been given a penalty, according to Suarez, who remarked as the game came to an end: “The defender stops him, and he throws his body in front of him. Also, extremely evident is Darwin’s. They are not justifications, but the World Cup is awarding unbelievable penalties. In addition, FIFA and the referee committee need to clarify their positions.


Instead of Uruguay, South Korea advanced to the World Cup’s knockout round. They will play Brazil on Monday night.
