Galatasaray’s Marcao receives a red card for beating a teammate

Galatasaray defender Marcao was sent off in the clash with Giresunspor on Monday night after receiving a red card for fighting his own team-mate.

In the 61st minute, Marcao batted with his head and then pushed to Kerem Akturkoglu before being separated by other members of the Galatasaray team.

Marcao was fired after a VAR review of the incident and will probably now still be punished for fighting on the field. However, the team continued to win their Super Light start 2-0.

Potential penalty

According to the regulations of the Turkish League, this incident is considered an ‘assault’ and can lead to a long suspension.

According to the rules, Marcao can be banned between five and ten matches due to his actions.

What was said?

After the match, Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim said: “The club will do what is necessary in their own way.”

He continued: “Marcao will apologize to Kerem and the rest of the team for his behavior.”
