The All India Football Federation (AIFF) Disciplinary Committee, upon reviewing the red card incident involving Mumbai City FC midfielder Ahmed Jahouh in the Indian Super League 2020-21 match against NorthEast United FC last Saturday in Bambolim, has cautioned the Moroccan with a warning that in event of any repetition of such act, exemplary sanctions might be imposed in accordance with regulatory provisions of the AIFF Disciplinary Code.

The AIFF body deemed Jahouh’s reckless first-half tackle on NEUFC player Khassa Camara, a serious foul play offence, endangering the safety of the opponent on field, after the video footage of the incident was sent for review.
