LUKMAN HARUNA Insults Referee, Faces Sanctions From Dynamo KievNigerian midfielder Lukman Haruna must conduct himself in an orderly manner during Dynamo Kiev's matches, even in friendly games.

At the Ukrainian vice-champions training camp in Austria on Friday, a test game was held with Monaco, incidentally the past club of  Lukman Haruna.

The game ended 1-0 in favor of the French team. Dynamo Kiev were forced to play the last 16 minutes of normal time without Haruna Lukman, who was dismissed in the 74th minute for insulting the referee.

The 2007 world champion at Under 17 level now faces sanctions from the club, coach Yuri Semin has told the official website.

''As for the removal of Haruna, apparently, he and the match referee know French. This played a decisive role. By the way, to remove Haruna completely, unwarranted yellow cards received by Khacheridi and Garmash, for which both will be punished.

''This of course applies to Haruna. Lukman clearly said something to the referee, so easy for the referee to dismiss the player. So we will apply the penalties,'' said the  Dynamo coach to the official website.

The 21-year-old central midfielder is under contract with Dynamo Kiev until June 2016.
