One match ban for Rutenka
The EHF Court of Handball has reached a decision following disciplinary proceedings against Siarhei Rutenka of FC Barcelona Intersport (ESP) after a disqualification for serious unsportsmanlike conduct.
The player received a direct disqualification in minute 45:28 of his team’s EHF VELUX Men's Champions League last 16 match against Montpellier Agglomération HB (FRA) on 25 March 2012.
He will be sanctioned with a one match suspension based on article B.1 of the EHF List of Penalties.
The player will therefore not be eligible to play for FC Barcelona Intersport in the EHF VELUX Men's Champions League quarter-final match against AG Kobenhavn (DEN), taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark on Friday 20 April 2012.
An appeal to the EHF Court of Appeal may be lodged by the player and/or his club until Thursday 12 April 2012.
