The Federation of Uganda Football Associations – FUFA has slapped a one-month suspension on URA FC midfielder Ivan Sserubiri over violence on pitch.
“FUFA Competitions Disciplinary Panel has handed URA FC player Sserubiri Ivan a one month suspension and fined him UGX 500,000 for breaching the FUFA Competitions rules and regulations Articles 31(2) and 31(3) during his club’s match with Wakiso Giants FC on 28th December 2021,” FUFA wrote in a statement released Monday afternoon.
During the said match, Sserubiri violently attacked assistant referee Nantabo Lydia Wanyama after her offside ruling led to cancellation of URA’s goal in the 87th minute.
“The player’s conduct put the game of football into disrepute. The suspension expires on 3rd February 2022,” FUFA wrote.
