The Valencia native, who is the most recognised Spanish official, now looks set to sit out the next rounds of action in Spanish football.
He had been in charge of this week’s Champions League encounter between Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, where his laidback approach earned him praise.
Lahoz has been an official in the Spanish top division since 2008 and is one of the most recognisable names in officiating circles across Europe, having officiated in a number of top competitions including in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The 43-year-old – who is known for his talkative and often flamboyant style of officiating – has been a recognised FIFA listed referee since 2011.
