Player could get 3-year ban for flying kick

Player could get 3-year ban for flying kick

Bolivian club Oriente Petrolero wants Blooming opponent Sergio Jauregui to be issued a three-year suspension for kicking Oriente player Leonardo Medina in the face with a flying kick in a football match last weekend.
Richard Mendez, a director with Oriente Petrolero, said league rules called for suspensions of up to three years for such on-field violence.
"And we want the maximum penalty," Mendez said on Tuesday.
In Sunday's match, Medina pushed Jauregui, and Jauregui responded with a martial arts-style flying kick that struck Medina in the neck and face. Medina was treated in a hospital and is expected to be sidelined for about two weeks.
Jauregui offered a public apology afterward.
The prosecutor handling the case said Jauregui committed "criminal aggression" and said he expected to file charges.
