The penalties for the fight were given earlier this week, and the player who bit the other man’s penis will be facing a 5-year suspension, while the guy who suffered the bite will be suspended for a much smaller total of six months.
The Director of the Mosellan football district claimed the injured player was suspended because the blame was “more or less shared” and that things escalated once he tried to step in and break up the fight:
“The events took place after the match, in the stadium car park. There was an altercation, an escalation and things got worse.
It’s quite rare to have sanctions of several years, there are less than 10 per year. The case was a bit saucy, but… there must have been some nasty tension, so the smiles on the disciplinary committee quickly faded.”
