The disciplinary committee of the KNVB ruled then that the suspension was left standing. Willem II has now decided not to appeal against the punishment.

According to director Berry van Gool, the do not agree for negative publicity. “Our main motive is not well understood. The KNVB has us insufficiently made clear when a videoarbiter possibly could grab,” he says against the AD.

“There was still no regulation. It was not clear incident. The opinions are still divided or Kali yellow or red deserves.”

It was the first time that the videoscheidsrechter was used in an official match at the highest level. The disciplinary committee also used for the first time, the explanation of the video-arbitrator as evidence.

Van Gool is that Willem II is not responsible for help with set up of guidelines for the use of the videoscheidsrechter. “That the working group is to videoarbitrage but do,” he says.

“When Willem II will continue to have the discomfort linger that we have voluntarily worked on a project that is still on all sides rattled. That we are an employee therefore a time must miss, it feels unjust.”
