Technical manager Marcel Brands of PSV has all the confidence that Hirving Lozano Thursday by the disciplinary committee of the KNVB is cleared of his red card on Saturday in the home match against sc Heerenveen (2-2).
PSV went Monday not agree with the settlement proposal of three duels suspension for Lozano, because the club is of the opinion that the beating movement of their attacker in the direction of opponent Lucas Woudenberg to be heavily punished.
Brands feel themselves strengthened by the interviews of referee Dennis Higler after the end of the confrontation in the Philips Stadium, in which he expressed somewhat to doubt his decision.
“That, and the statements of the players, must ensure that the suspension of Lozano is repealed,” says the director Wednesday in conversation with Voetbal International.
“Woudenberg has stated that it is more of a push than a slap. We had, therefore, expected that the red card would be turned into yellow. We were shocked, so, equally, when Monday it was announced that Lozano for three matches have been suspended.”
Brands will find that there are in the Netherlands with two sizes is measured, since following his departure to chelsea Klaas-Jan Huntelaar Sunday during the away game against PEC Zwolle for the same kind of offense against Bram from Poland nothing got.
“That says everything. It is all so confusing for players and coaches. When we against Sparta played, it was Bas Nijhuis very very much. I think he for the case with Lozano’t even had the whistle”, he claims.
“And Isimat-Mirin had against Heerenveen to the side with a bloedlip after a tap, but his direct opponent got nothing. Woudenberg had not even a bloedlip.”
If Lozano just for three races to be excluded, then he is the winner of Sunday on a visit to Feyenoord, and also the duels with FC Utrecht (home) and Willem II (from).
PSV has by the draw against sc Heerenveen with ten speelrondes for the bow only five points ahead of closest pursuer Ajax.
