Rodríguez gets 5-game ban for leaving Kohr with 14cm wound
Mainz player and former Real Madrid youth team player José Rodríguez has also been dealt a heavy fine for his brutal challenge on Dominik Kohr.
Suspension and fine
The Deutscher Fussball Bund's Sporting Tribunal has served Mainz player José Rodríguez with a five-game suspension and fined the player 10,000 euros for his dangerous challenge on Augsburg's Dominik Kohr.
The incident happened in stoppage time of Sunday's match when Mainz were leading 1-3 and with the ball far from either penalty area. Making matters worse, Rodríguez had only been on the pitch for a matter of minutes, having come on as a late sub for Jean-Philippe Gbamin. Circumstances which only heightened Augsburg's indignation. Rodríguez meanwhile was left in tears at the sheer brutality of what he had done.
