CEBU Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. football tournament manager Jonathan Maximo has asked the University of the Visayas defender who allegedly punched an University of Cebu to explain his side regarding the incident.
“We will wait for his side to be fair with everybody,” said football tournament Manager Jonathan Maximo in an interview with Sun.Star Cebu yesterday.
Maximo said the officials of the game didn’t see the actual incident last Saturday because it happened on the opposite side of the pitch and the referees were on the other side of the University of San Carlos football field.
However, Cesafi commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy and Maximo received a letter of complaint last Tuesday from UC head coach Glenn Ramos on the alleged punching. A medical and dental certificate was also attached to prove that the player was actually punched.
Tiukinhoy and Maximo are now waiting for the comment of the UV defender before they can analyze the whole incident and give the proper sanctions so that this problem will be resolved.
Maximo said that the commissioner’s office will be the one who will decide for the punishment of the player as soon as all the documents are gathered.
“I can’t really say what the sanction of the player will be it is up to the commissioner,” said Maximo. (EKA)
