Luiz Felipe Serve 1 Match Suspension After Received His First Ever Red Card

Luiz Felipe's red card in Lazio's 3-1 win over Inter was the first in his career. The Brazilian defender now has to serve a one-match suspension from Serie A.

As reported by Italian media LazioNews24, 24-year-old Brazilian defender Luiz Felipe was shown a red card after the final whistle in the Biancoceleste's win over Inter on Sunday for unsportsmanlike behavior.

Luiz Felipe was caught hugging Nerazzuri striker, Joaquin Correa from behind after the end of the game, the Argentine reacted and looked displeased with his former team-mate's actions in the Italian capital and referee Massimiliano Irrati ruled it was an unsportsmanlike act and give a red card for the defender.

The Brazilian has not previously received any red card in 111 games for the Biancoceleste and even while on loan at Salernitana. While he has received 33 yellow cards throughout his career, but the red card is a bitter pill for a player considering the punishment he has to serve.

He has also apologized for his actions via his personal Instagram after the match and has now been forced to miss Lazio's next match in Serie A against Hellas Verona next weekend.

Meanwhile, Joaquin Correa has also accepted the apology of his former team-mate and promised to be a better example for football fans who saw them and he would forget the incident and turn over a new page.
