The Korean’s challenge saw Tanjong’s Sazali Salleh suffer a broken leg on Sunday.
S.League chief executive Lim Chin says Loyola Meralco Sparks striker Jang Jo Won could be punished for horror tackle that left Sazali Salleh with a broken leg.
Sazali burst into tears as he was stretchered off the field during Tanjong Pagar United’s victory in the RHB Singapore Cup quarter-final second leg on Sunday after he was the victim of an ugly challenge from Jang, who was immediately shown a red card.
It’s now thought retrospective action will be taken on the Korean after Lim confirmed League officials will review the incident before deciding whether or not to enforce disciplinary procedures.
“We will take a look at the incident, and concurrently if or when Tanjong Pagar lodge an official complaint, we’ll take it from there,” he told The New Paper.
Justice will only be a minor comfort for Sazali, who was driven straight to hospital after the game and underwent x-rays to determine the extent of the damage.
Unfortunately for 33-year-old midfielder it revealed a broken his left fibula that means he will spend the remainder of the season on the sidelines and possibly miss the last-four clash with Global FC later this year.
