Five-match suspension for anti-Jewish chanting

The football association KNVB want to suspend ADO Den Haag player Lex Immers for five matches, one suspended, for singing anti-Jewish songs after ADO beat Ajax last Sunday.

Ajax players and supporters are nicknamed De Joden.
Player Charlton Vincento and trainer John van den Brom face a one-match suspension for their role in the club house celebrations.
A spokesman said the KNVB usually confined itself to punishing behaviour on the pitch. ‘But given this is a very nasty case, we can act,’ he said.
