Three-year suspension for a footballer who had violently attacked an opponent

The penalty is heavy, commensurate with the seriousness of the facts. A 15-year-old football player was suspended for three years on Friday by the Disciplinary Committee of the Côtes-d’Armor district, reports The Telegram. On January 28, during a meeting of the second division of the U18 district between her Ginglin-Cesson team and that of Prat, the teenager had violently attacked an opponent. After a foul whistled against her, the player kicked a 14-year-old girl violently in the head before crushing her head with her crampons.

Suffering from bruises and a sprain, the victim was taken to Saint-Brieuc hospital. Very shocked, one of her teammates had also been hospitalized. The police had intervened to restore calm at the edge of the field. The Ginglin-Cesson club was not punished for the violent acts of its young footballer, who was held solely responsible.
