The Liga MX will finally be able to hold out against indiscipline of the players during the health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The governing body of Mexican football released a new regulation of sanctions for footballers who do not respect the sanitary protocol and attend events not authorized by the club, such as what happened with Jonathan Rodríguez, who attended a party wearing Cruz Azul clothes.
Liga MX reported that the new sanctions will be the separation of the player from his club for 10 days and fines that can reach 100,000 pesos (approximately $ 5,000 dollars).
“If a member of the Clubs is caught not respecting the LIGA MX Sanitary Protocol in events not authorized by the Club, they must be separated from the squad for a period of 10 days and will rejoin by presenting a negative PCR test to the League.
“Additionally, in accordance with the Competition Regulations of the LIGA BBVA MX and the LIGA BBVA EXPANSIÓN MX, as well as with the General Regulations of the Mexican Federation of Association Football, the case will be referred to the Disciplinary Commission for analysis and may reach a financial penalty of $ 100,000.00 (One Hundred Thousand Pesos 00/100 MN) ”, says the statement.

This regulation came into effect as of this Saturday, January 23, 2021 and was approved by all the Clubs of Liga MX, Liga Expansión MX and Liga MX Femenil.
It should be noted that, in cases of indiscipline prior to the aforementioned date, it was the Clubs themselves who applied the sanctions in accordance with their internal regulations.
