Appeal

Jesus and CBF can appeal against CONMEBOL decision

Although CONMEBOL has fined and suspended him for now, Jesus and Brazil Football Confederation (CBF) are free to appeal against the decision.

However, as of now, Jesus is all set to miss two friendlies against Colombia and Peru on September 7 and 11.

He could also miss out on a couple of games in October, which are yet to be announced.

Messi too

Last week, Messi too suffered a similar fate when he was fined $50,000 by the South American governing body.

The body also banned him from international football for three months, as he is set to miss three Argentine friendlies.

Messi's outburst involved accusing the governing body and the match officials of being corrupt, claiming that that the tournament was a set up for Brazil.

Author's take

Footballers should learn to appeal instead of accusing officials

While it is hard to see two top players from top football nations being handed fines and suspensions, the author agrees with CONMEBOL's decision.

We also believe that big players like Jesus and Messi should better know what and what not to say on big platforms.

Moreover, there is an order in place for everything.

So, instead of an outburst, they should have appealed.
