Brazilian Rodrigo Martins Cintra
has been banned indefinitely for ejecting the wrong player in a Corinthians-Rio Branco game.
In the first half, Rio Branco's Josias
tripped a Corinthians player but Cintra showed a yellow card to Felipe
, who, because he had already been cautioned, was red-carded.
''He thought it was one player but it
was a different one,'' said Marcos Marinho
, the head of the Paulista soccer federations referees committee. ''He needs some time to get over it.''
