Kolkata: player has been served with a ShowCause Notice by the All India Football Federation (AIFF) Disciplinary Committee for his unsavoury behaviour/remark towards match officials in the game against FC Goa in the Hero ISL.

In the game played on February 8 at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim, Boumous received his 4th yellow card of the season in the fifth minute of injury time for ‘delaying the restart of play’. He was then shown a direct red card a minute later for ‘using offensive and abusive languages towards the appointed match officials’.
 
Boumous will automatically serve a two-match suspension for accumulating four yellow cards and a direct expulsion, according to league regulations. He will at least remain ineligible for selection in Mumbai City’s matches against Bengaluru FC and Jamshedpur FC next.
 
Furthermore, upon the analysis of the referee’s report, the Moroccan has been summoned by the Committee and asked to show cause as to why no additional sanctions are imposed on him.   
 
Boumous has been given time till 9 AM on February 12 to submit a reply. (UNI)
