Vitesse has imposed a stadium ban on almost forty supporters for setting off smoke bombs. The home game against sc Heerenveen (1-2) had to be temporarily stopped on Sunday after fifteen minutes, because considerable smoke developed behind one of the goals. One smoke bomb was even thrown on the field.

“While the black-gray smoke rises in the South Stand, 99.9 percent of the people in the GelreDome think exactly the same: here we go again, what a misery,” Vitesse writes in a statement. declaration

“Hunging for that yellow-black football party, as we like to experience it together and as we were used to. A party for young and old, in a pleasant and safe environment, should become self-evident again. And quickly.”

Two spectators were arrested for assaulting two flight attendants. “It should be clear that this is completely unacceptable and should never happen,” said Vitesse, which imposed stadium bans on the supporters who were (partly) responsible for the fireworks campaign.

Vitesse fans misbehaved more this season

It was not the first time that part of the Vitesse supporters misbehaved this season. For example, the home game with Sparta Rotterdam was stopped because one fan stormed the field and Sparta keeper Maduka Okoye was pelted from the stands.

The Arnhem club has already given more than a hundred fans a stadium ban this season. Vitesse tries to recover the financial damage from the perpetrators.

“These are hard measures, which we are absolutely not proud of, but which are necessary for the return to a safe and attractive stadium. It must stop small groups of ‘supporters’ ruining it for the rest,” reports the number six of the Eredivisie.

With one round to go, Vitesse, as number six, is already certain of participating in the play-offs for European football. The team from Arnhem will close the regular competition on Sunday with a home match against champions Ajax.

Wijndal questions mark for return against Heerenveen | Football

AZ led 2-1 until the 90th minute, but still lost the game. “We played a very creditable game,” said Jansen. “Until the 90th minute there is actually not a penny of pain and we are not bothered by anything.” After the equalizer, the trainer saw his team in trouble. “If you keep a little more peace, you stay away from that. But we can’t manage that and then he falls in nicely after all.”

“We have every confidence in the return match, despite all the negative emotions that naturally come to the surface,” the trainer believes. “We have shown that we are capable of beating Heerenveen.”

Heerenveen coach Ole Tobiasen still sees AZ as a favorite. “We still have nothing to lose,” he says on his club’s website. “AZ must. It’s only one goal difference. We certainly don’t count ourselves rich yet. It can still go either way.”

The game starts on Sunday at 2.30 pm in Alkmaar. The other semi-final is between Vitesse and FC Utrecht.

Guardiola calls on City fans to behave, Klopp hopes for Gerrard’s help | NOW

Published

on

Manager Josep Guardiola has urged Manchester City fans to behave well if the club are champions on Sunday. Colleague Jürgen Klopp of competitor Liverpool hopes that Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard can help his former club in the exciting title battle in the Premier League.

Manchester City and Liverpool will decide who will be champions during the last round on Sunday. League-leader City, which is up against Aston Villa, has a one point lead over number two Liverpool. ‘The Reds’ play against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Both title candidates play a home game, which will create a big party in one stadium. In recent days, Everton, Nottingham Forest and Port Vale have gone wild with overjoyed supporters storming onto the pitch. In Nottingham, Sheffield United captain Billy Sharp was headbutted by a fan, while Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira kicked an Everton supporter who was harassing him.

“We have to be very careful, the images of those games were not good,” Guardiola said at his press conference on Friday. “The combination of a lot of emotions, happiness and sometimes alcohol can be very dangerous. We have to behave as best as possible at City on Sunday and celebrate the possible title in the right way.”

The 51-year-old Spaniard can become champion for the tenth time in his coaching career and for the fourth time with City. This was previously possible in 2018, 2019 and 2021. “The title is the most difficult prize to win,” said Guardiola. “The season is so long, you have to deal with injuries and with good and bad moments. You notice that the atmosphere in the dressing room is better when you do well in the Premier League.”

Guardiola, who again has defenders Kyle Walker and John Stones, has urged his players to enjoy Sunday. “Of course the players feel that it is a very important game, but it is just a football game. We have to do what we have done in recent months.”

  • 1. Manchester City: 37-90 (+72)
  • 2. Liverpool: 37-89 (+66)

Klopp: ‘I’m sure Gerrard takes it very seriously’

Liverpool coach Klopp knows that his team is dependent on Aston Villa in the title fight on Sunday. A striking detail is that the club from Birmingham is trained by Gerrard. Klopp expects the Liverpool icon to be very eager to help his former club by achieving a good result against City.

“If I could help Dortmund or Mainz by winning a game, it would give me extra motivation,” Klopp said at his press conference on Friday about the two previous clubs he coached. “I’m sure Gerrard will take Sunday’s game 100 percent seriously, without me having to call him about it.”

The German trainer does not yet know whether he can have Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah and Fabinho, who are struggling with a minor injury, in the home game against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Liverpool are also looking closely at next Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid.

“It all looks good, the boys are making strides,” Klopp said of Van Dijk, Salah and Fabinho’s recovery. “But I have no idea what we will do with them next weekend. I prefer that they all play on Sunday to get some rhythm or at least sit on the bench, but I don’t know if that is possible.”

All Premier League matches start on Sunday at 5 p.m. Dutch time.
