Fiorentina vs Lazio brings disaster for Franck Ribery. He must receive punishment for his actions encouraging official officials. This is the punishment for Franck Ribery for pushing the judge.
The incident occurred during a match between Fiorentina cons Lazio. In the 9th match of the Italian League, La Viola entertain Lazio at the Artemio Franchi Stadium on Monday (10/28/2019) and the result Fiorentina must defeat the visitors with a score of 1-2.
Ribery was reportedly very upset because the referee authorized Ciro Immobile’s goal, which ensured Lazio’s victory. In the process of the goal, Jordan Lukaku first violated Riccardo Sotil before giving assists to Immobile.
Ribery was seen protesting against one of the linesman, Matteo Passeri, after the match. Ribery was even caught on camera pushing the referee twice before finally Ribery was pulled by a Fiorentina staff member.
For his actions, Ribery was finally rewarded with a red card and sent off the field. Not only that, he was also banned from playing in three matches and was fined 20 thousand Euros (Rp. 311 million).
Not only Ribery, coach Vincenzo Montella also questioned the referee’s decision. He regretted the referee did not review his goal through VAR.

“Coming in a threatening and disrespectful manner towards the assistant, in addition to inappropriate words, by pushing it with one hand toward the chest, as well as another impulse by gripping the arm.”

But in the end, Ribery apologized for his actions. The Twitter account tweeted
“I apologize to colleagues, coaches, fans.
I also apologize to Passeri because at the end of the match I was very upset and I hope he understands how the atmosphere of my day is. ”
