The board of the Royal Belgian Football association (belgian football association) defender Christophe Diedhiou Tuesday a suspension of four days and a fine of 4,000 euros is imposed. Monday had the Bondsparket the same penalty proposed, but his club Mouscron, agreed not to join in.
Unless the Henegouwers to appeal against the sanction, they can not Diedhiou count in the home games against Club Brugge (5 August), Antwerp (August 11) and Eupen (25 August) and the move to Anderlecht (17 August).
The 30-year-old Senegalese keeps the heavy penalty to his red card last weekend on the first weekend in the Jupiler Pro League. The defender of Mouscron picked up Saturday on the field of Oostende (2-1) with a blow in the face of Indy Boonen. Referee Wesley Alen showed Diedhiou first yellow card, but changed the color after the intervention of the videoref in red.
Diedhiou showed itself at the hearing of the disputes committee to be assisted by the reputed lawyer Laurent Denis. Who claimed that his client is the leather wanted to protect, and therefore his body continued. Diedhiou denied the battle in itself, but the defender wanted to own say they are anticipating a charge of Boonen.
“The tv images prove, however, to the contrary,” said the complaints board. “Diedhiou saves with his right arm voluntarily at the shoulder and the jaw of a Race at a time that there is between both players, still no physical contact had been. More: it is Diedhiou, who very clearly the physical approach to Boonen is looking for a step in his direction. Given the movement and the intensity with which it was associated, is the red card is more than justified. Last year he got for similar facts and a suspension. There has Diedhiou, clearly, no lessons”, the commission closed his case.
Last season beat the Senegalese defender on match day 7 in the face of Julie De Sart (Zulte Waregem). That provided him with two days suspension and a fine of 600 euros.
This year the sanctions imposed after red cards, anyway, a suit and more stringent. The number of schorsingsdagen and fines as included in the indicative table for the coming season are much higher. For a blow in the face the penalties up to eight days suspension.
