Ex-Liverpool player Krisztián Nemeth gets a 5-game ban in Holland for ruffing up the ref [Video]
It’s interesting what gets footballers a 5-game ban these days.
At the same time as Nicolas Anelka faces a minimum 5-game ban for charges of anti-Semitism, over in Holland a former Liverpool player received the punishment after losing his cool in the Dutch Cup.
AZ Alkmaar won 2-0 at Roda on Tuesday night in the KNVB Beker, and the hosts lost striker Krisztián Nemeth in the 57th minute to seal their own fate in the competition.
Nemeth, who was on Liverpool’s books from 2009-2010, collected his marching orders after the referee didn’t buy his claims for a penalty. After seeing the ref refuse to give him the decision, the 25-year-old Hungarian international lost the plot, which induced the red card and some far-too-close contact between the forward and the official.
Despite apologising after the game for his bad behaviour, Nemeth has now been slapped with a 5-game ban.
