Antwerp cheat goes wrong: Schlag Stengs is now blocked even longer

Calvin Stengs has been given a heavy suspension for punching Anderlecht in Royal Antwerp’s Belgium match on Wednesday. The Antwerp striker was suspended for six matches, two of which were conditional.

The seven-time Oranje international was shown a red card more than an hour later after a striking move at his Amadou Diawara address. The match ended 0:0.

The Belgian Disciplinary Committee had offered a four-game compromise, one of which was subject to change. Antwerp did not participate in Wednesday night’s cup game against Union Sint-Gillis. The ban would only go into effect on Thursday before Stengs could play, as the case needed to be reconsidered.

But Antwerp did not expect the ban to be much more difficult to appeal. Stengs can play against Union on Wednesday but will miss league games against Club Brugge, RC Genk, KAS Eupen and OH Leuven. The Dutch player, who was fined 5 thousand euros, will not return to the field until March.

Manager Mark van Bommel’s club may appeal the decision. If so, the case will go before the Professional Football Disciplinary Board on Friday and Stengs could face Club Brugge in a senior match on Sunday.

KRC Genk is in the lead in Belgium, followed by Union with six points, Antwerp third with twelve points and Club Brugge with eighteen points.
