The AFFA Disciplinary Committee disqualified Sabah's Tamkin Khalilzade for five matches.
Report informs that the 26-year-old foul player attempted to use physical pressure on referee Kamal Umudlu at the end of the match against Keshla within the eighth round of the Premier League (1:1). The club was fined AZN 4,000.
Three out of five games were accepted conditionally and a 3-month probation period was appointed. If Khalilzade is fined again during the probation period, the second part of the sanctions will come into force.
