PSV gives 40-year stadium ban to supporter who entered field against Sevilla
PSV supporter storms the field and attacks goalkeeper Sevilla
PSV is issuing a 40-year stadium ban to a supporter who stormed the field in match against Sevilla. PSV also wants to start proceedings to recover any damages for the club from the man, who is currently serving a three-month prison sentence, one of which is suspended.
The spectator entered the field on Feb. 23 and pushed unsuspecting goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic in the back and then landed on top of the Sevilla goalkeeper. The offender had a blood alcohol level of 1.6 during his action.
Dmitrovic quickly got help from PSV striker Luuk de Jong and on-rushing stewards. Then the attacker was taken away by security.
PSV director Marcel Brands was furious and already announced that he wanted the harshest possible punishment for the supporter. “We have to crack down on this and make sure he never comes into the stadium again,” was his response. It later turned out that the man already had a stadium ban for previous misconduct and thus should not have been in the stands at all.
Already banned from stadium twice
The offender had already received two stadium bans from PSV and also should not have attended the match against Sevilla.
Almost two weeks ago, the field stormer received a three-month prison sentence, one month of which was suspended.
