Barcelona appeal on Messi yellow card is rejected

messi yellow card appeal rejected

RFEF Appeals Committee has made a decision to reject Barcelona’s second appeal on Lionel Messi’s yellow card, which the Argentine player received in the match against Sevilla.

The Appeals Committee has again backed the referee, who considered Messi’s action as a way to win time. To recall, Messi tied his boots for about one and half minute.

Barcelona can file another appeal to the CAS in coming 15 days.
