Botafogo directors suspended over referee protest

RIO DE JANEIRO, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Two Botafogo directors have been suspended by Brazilian football's disciplinary tribunal for running onto the pitch and insulting the referee at the end of a game.

The club said on their official Web site that Manoel Renha was banned for 60 days and Carlos Augusto Montenegro for 30 following the incidents at the end of the team's 1-0 home defeat by Internacional on Nov. 2.

Coach Cuca, who was also seen on the pitch, was not punished by the tribunal.

The game ended in chaotic scenes after Inter won with a controversially awarded penalty in injury-time.

Furious Botafogo players and officials surrounded referee Wilson Souza Mendonca at the end of the match and the official left the field under a police escort.

Botafogo also claimed that Inter should have had a player sent off in the first half.
