AZ coach Arne Slot questions the red card that Calvin Stengs received on Saturday in the home game against PEC Zwolle. The attacker was sent off the field early on by referee Serdar Gözübüyük.

The 21-year-old Stengs, who had never had a yellow or red card in his previous 48 Eredivisie matches, started a somewhat rough tackle on Kenneth Paal. On the advice of the VAR, Gözübüyük went red.

“I told the fourth official that I think it is very strange that you have been able to give someone a certain kick that is good for red, if the player has no pain at all and just gets up again,” Slot said. FOX Sports.

“There was a moment of contact in a strange place, but then the VAR or referee must estimate how big the impact of the kick has been. That impact was not there at all, although it was a strange violation.”

According to Slot, Stengs wanted to show his good will by defending and intervening in a dangerous moment from PEC. “Anyone who knows Calvin – the VAR can’t know that – knows he would never mean it wrong and give a kill kick.”

With a man less, AZ fell behind by a goal from PEC midfielder Clint Leemans. In the second half, Myron Boadu saved a point for the Alkmaarders.
