The dragons believe that the Colombian player will not be punished but, if that happens, they have already announced that they will ask for his decriminalization.
At Porto Canal, the communication director of FC Porto, Francisco J. Marques, admitted that if Luis Díaz is punished by the expulsion in the game with Braga, the club will try to decriminalize the winger.
“If after seeing the Discipline Council you see the images you understand to penalize Luis Díaz, naturally FC Porto will try to try to penalize him, but we will believe that he will not be punished. It was the move that was made, with unfortunate consequences for the Sporting de Braga defender, but did not justify the red card“, Said the official, quoted by Renascença radio.
This Wednesday, in the first leg of the Portuguese Cup semi-finals, the Colombian player saw a red card after, when he fired a shot at goal, he hit David Carmo’s leg.
The player from Braga, who had to leave the pitch by ambulance, fractured his tibia and right fibula and faces a break of at least four months.
The “warriors” returned to tie the game in the final minutes of the game, at a time when FC Porto was already reduced to nine units, after the expulsion of Matheus Uribe, who headed Ricardo Esgaio in a moment of tension between them.
The president of FC Porto, Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa, was present at the press conference after the game, in which he asked the fans for calm and serenity, although he insistently said that “enough”.
