WINNIPEG — Valour FC has stripped Jordan Murrell of his captaincy in the wake of a stormy red-card exit in the Winnipeg CPL’s club 1-0 loss to HFX Wanderers in Halifax earlier this week.
Murrell was issued a straight red card for making contact with referee Filip Dujic in the 89th minute at Wanderers Grounds. The incident occurred after Murrell went down in a challenge with a Halifax player. When he got up, he pushed the referee and was promptly ejected.
