The failure of Disciplinary court of the Argentine Football Federation (AFA) has sanctioned the technical director of Defense and Justice, Sebastian Beccacece, for its crossing with its pair of River, Marcello Gallardo. For this reason, the coach of the Florencio Varela club will be able to pay the penalty with a fine and sit on the bench on Friday to lead his team in the away match. Lano.
“Technical director Sebastián Andrés Beccacece, of the Defense and Justice Club, is suspended for two games or fined 46 ($ 62,560). Art. 287 and 260/1 of the RD (incorrect attitude),” he says concisely. bulletin 6127, which contains the sentences signed by Fernando Mitjans, Eduardo Bozzi and Jorge Galleli.
The coach was sent off after stopping a side kick that the River player was about to take Andrea Herrera. How come? He had asked the fourth referee for a change and wanted to do it before the lineout. For this reason, stopped in front of the Millionaire player and jumped up and down to prevent him from putting the ball back into play.
But it wasn’t the only episode in which Jorge Sampaoli’s former field assistant starred in the Chilean and Argentine national teams. He also had a hard crossroads of words with Marcelo Gallardo leaving for the changing room area. And they ensure that, once the match was over, they would be within inches of coming to blows.
However, the referee’s report “was bland” and did not take into account all the details that were circulated. Therefore, the Court has adapted to the act that bears the signature of Facundo Tello. What does it mean? Who did not contemplate everything that happened off the pitch and, for the details, they considered a slight penalty.
The Court, therefore, did not act ex officio. This is the characteristic of the organ chaired by Fernando Mitjans and for this reason, not only in the Beccacece case, it was adapted to the referee’s brief which only detailed the obstruction of the coach to a game action. The sources consulted who worked on the ruling described the arbitration report as “mild”.
If there is the arbiter, there is the VAR and there is the report of what happened, we believe that we must adapt to it and not to other elements. This Court does not have the characteristic of acting ex officio ”, analyzes the source consulted.
When it comes to the expulsion of a technical director, the regulation indicates that the sanction will only be effective beyond the five dates: when they are lower, there is the possibility of paying a fine and therefore paying the penalty.
“What’s wrong with you, who are you?”
On the pitch the clash with Gallardo has begun and the referees report speaks of a small exchange of words: on TV a “What’s wrong, who are you?” from Beccacece to Gallardo when the River coach asked the fourth referee for an explanation for the side block of the local TD
However, there was another situation that was not covered in the report. Tough exchange with Gallardo when he left for the changing room area. Furthermore, some witnesses assured that after the match there was an even hotter episode when the match had several minutes to go.
Beccacece’s heartbeat in matches seems to be uncontrollable. In his early clubs as a DT in Chile he was denounced for the law on violence in stadiums in the classic that the Universidad Católica beat the Universidad de Chile 3-0. More? He had a fight with Pablo Pérez during his time at Independiente and a misdemeanor for throwing a bottle at the San Lorenzo stand, among others.
