Soccer News: Tomas Ujfalusi Suspended 2 Games For Tackle On Lionel Messi

I think the message here is, “don’t tackle Messi, you’ll break him and we need him.”

Tomas Ujfalusi has been suspended for his red card worthy tackle on Barcelona star Lionel Messi. Messi turned his ankle and will be out for at least one more game after missing Barca’s last match against Sporting.

Ujfalusi stepped on Messi’s foot as Messi was running at full speed cause his ankle to roll, spraining both interior and exterior ligaments in the his ankle.

The two game suspension is the minimal penalty allowed by league rules. The disciplinary committee could have suspended Ujfalusi for up to a month.
