Bruno Fernandes was given at least a five-game suspension by the English FA for pushing the lineman during Sunday’s 7-0 loss for Manchester United against Liverpool.
The Portuguese should be suspended for five games, according to Ref Support UK.
After tussling with Trent Alexander-Arnold of Liverpool, Fernandes shoved linesman Adam Nunn in the back.
According to reports in the UK, the FA plans to spare the Portugal international any punishment for the incident since referee Andy Madley saw it happen.
Ref Support UK wants the Portuguese to serve a five-game ban for his action.
Fernandes tangled with Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold before shoving linesman Adam Nunn in the back.
Reports in the United Kingdom suggest that the FA are set to let the Portugal international go unpunished for the action since the incident was spotted by referee Andy Madley.
But Ref Support UK, which is dedicated to independent training, support and development of referees, are calling for a five-match ban on the former Benfica man.
“I think he’s got to be looking at least a five-game ban,” Martin Cassidy, chief executive of Ref Support UK, told PA.
