More kicks than a baby in a mothers stomach

5 posts in this topic

The player suspended for two matches for kicking an owl in a Colombian first division match in February has been handed a new seven-match ban for similar treatment of an opponent.

The Deportivo Pereira defender Luis Moreno will miss the rest of the Apertura championship's 18-match round-robin phase following an incident during a 2-1 defeat at Deportivo Cali.

The Panamanian was shown a straight red card for kicking Cali's Pablo Andrés Escobar in the midriff when he was lying on the ground after being fouled.

Moreno must also pay two fines totalling 731,973 Colombian pesos (about £250), according to the latest list of sanctions posted on the website of the league's governing body, Dimayor.

Seven weeks ago, Moreno caused outrage when he kicked an owl in a match at Atlético Junior in Barranquilla. The bird, which died later, was regarded as a Junior mascot. It was by the touchline having been hit by the ball.

The incident infuriated home fans and animal rights groups and shocked television viewers. The Dimayor suspended Moreno for two matches and fined him.
