António Folha suspended for a month: “You are a thief”

The Dragons B team coach was sent off in the 78th minute of the match with Estrela da Amadora due to insults towards the referee.

FC Porto B won’t have the coach on the bench for the next 30 days. This is the sanction applied to António Folha, who is also liable to a fine of 3570 euros for charges against the referee Ricardo Baixinho, during the match with Estrela da Amadora.

The statement from the Disciplinary Board of the Portuguese Football Federation points out that António Folha is punished for “attacking honor and slanderous denunciation and for using coarse, offensive and abusive language” against Ricardo Baixinho.

At issue, according to the referee’s report, are the words “you’re a car thief, you’re pushing us away, you’re a thief.”
