Last weekend there were some striking red cards in the Jupiler Pro League. Owen Wijndal was sent off for a nod towards Thorgan Hazard and Christian Burgess was sent off after throwing a throw-in with full force onto the head of Genk player Tolu.

At the Professional Referee Department, Frank De Bleeckere came to give his opinion about the situations. He wanted to say something about what happened between Owen Wijndal and Thorgan Hazard.

“It was quite confusing, difficult for the referee too. The reason VAR intervened is because the referee did not observe the nod or tap with the head. He re-examined those images and saw that a possible red card could follow That is why Jasper Vergoote started looking at the images.”

“It is a typical situation with action-reaction. There is an action, Hazard’s mistake, for which you can also give a yellow card. Then the confrontation followed. Then as an Antwerp player you have to be smarter and not make that action. Then there will never be a red card,” De Bleeckere concludes.

Christian Burgess’s first straight red card

Christian Burgess was sent off in Genk for throwing a ball straight into Tolu’s face during a throw-in. “The images are clear,” De Bleeckere begins. In addition, a two-match suspension is requested for the Union player.

“It is deliberate what he does, with force, on a player who is one meter in front of him. I don’t think there is much discussion. This is not smart either.”

He also comes with a clear message with a view to the rest of the competition. “I think the emotions took over in both situations we are discussing today. The focus on football was a bit lost.”

“Now is also the time for us to show everyone that we don’t want to see this anymore. We have to draw the line somewhere, this is not what football expects. Let us concentrate on everything that concerns football and leave the emotional as much as possible. possible back roads,” he concludes.
