Gabriel Jesus suspended for two months for bad behavior in the latest Copa America final

Brazilian Footballer, Gabriel Jesus has been suspended from international matches for two months because of his bad behavior in the latest Copa America final.

The governing body of South American soccer, CONMEBOL, announced that it had fined the striker $30,000 for actions that are considered insulting and defamatory during Brazil’s 3-1 win over Peru in the July 7 decider match.

Jesus was handed with two yellow cards at the 70-minute mark in the South American cup final, and was sent off after the second one.

The 22-years-old first protested the decision with hand gestures indicated the referee had been paid off and later he pushed the video assistant referee feed on the sidelines. 

Well, if the punishment continues, the striker will not be able to play in Brazil’s friendlies against Colombia and Peru in September. Also, chances are Jesus would be sidelined for another two matches in October.
