|Defender Nguyen Hong Tien is banned two matches.
HA NOI (VNS) — Defender Nguyen Hong Tien of Ha Noi T&T has been sidelined for two matches for his step against Hoang Anh Gia Lai's defender Van Son during a V League 1 match last week.
Tien was not fined by the main referee of the game, but after reviewing the match, the Viet Nam Football Federation said his action was really violent and needed to be punished.
Tien did not complain about the decision but said he did not intend to play rough. He claimed it had only been an accident during their fight for the ball.
Tien will be back on field in July for the return-leg V League 1 matches. — VNS
