The KNVB intends to keep Edson Álvarez aside for at least two games. The Mexican got the red card during Ajax – Vitesse and is suspended from the football association for three matches, one of which is conditional.
However, the Amsterdam club and Álvarez themselves do not simply accept the KNVB’s settlement proposal. They will appeal and now leave the judgment to the disciplinary committee, as De Telegraaf to report.
Since the red card was given, there was already a lot to do about Pol van Boekel’s decision. Several analysts have spoken out against the choice and that is now even going a step further. ‘The Amsterdam club and the midfielder feel strengthened by the opinion of several fellow arbitrators of Van Boekel, who believe that the action should have been punished with a maximum of yellow, because the brutality (cruelty) set by UEFA is lacking’, so you can read.
Update – 11.25 am (September 29, 2020) – Thursday the case Álvarez in Zeist
Following on from De Telegraaf now also reports Football International that Ajax has submitted the settlement proposal for Edson Álvarez does not accept. The union wants to suspend Álvarez for three duels, one of which is conditional, but Ajax now allows the disciplinary committee to consider the matter. Next Thursday, the case will be in Zeist.
