The Uruguayan got himself his third red since he joined the Brazilians in January last year.

“We understand that it is a high pressure game but the guy needs to be a bit disciplined because he is costing the team. He was injured and we missed him, now he will have to sit out again at a time where the team needs him the most,” said a club source.

Meanwhile, Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane applauded referee Victor Gomes for giving Sirino a red card.

Sirino profited from a rebound clearance from the Golden Arrows goalkeeper Edmore Sibanda to extend Sundowns’ lead after Hlompho Kekana opened the scoring, but he would go on to undo his contribution to his side’s 2-1 victory with a late challenge on captain Matome Mathiane after the Arrows defender cleared the ball.

Coach Mosimane agreed with referee Gomes and applauded him for sending Sirino off. The South American got three red cards last season.
