R. Charleroi SC coach Enzo Scifo has been suspended for four matches by the Belgian Football Association following a tussle with a referee's assistant after his team's match with KVC Westerlo on 10 February.
Scifo unhappy with punishment
The former Belgian international clashed with official Rudi Lepoutre following the sending-off of Frank Defays during the 3-3 draw, but believes the punishment is harsh. "Even a one-game suspension would have been too much for me," said Scifo after the verdict. "It is a question of principle. It was between the linesman and myself, that's all.
'Official is lying'
"The fourth official is lying when he says that he had already warned me several times, before he made me leave the pitch. That should never had happened, it was the cause of all trouble."
Brogno takes over
Scifo will sit in the stands for the first division games against RAA Louviéroise, RSC Anderlecht, KRC Genk and K. Lierse SK. Assistant Dante Brogno will take over management duties for the fixtures.
