Ozan Kabak suspended for five matches
The DFB has judged Ozan Kabak guilty of unsporting behaviour in the form of attempted spitting.
The German football association (DFB) has judged Ozan Kabak guilty of unsporting behaviour in the form of attempted spitting. He has been banned for an additional four Bundesliga matches and fined 15,000 Euros.
The suspension will be added to the automatic one match ban for the red card shown to the Turkey international against Werder Bremen on Saturday (26/9).
The player and the club have accepted Wednesday’s verdict, meaning that the ban is now concrete. The centre-back will miss the upcoming matches against RB Leipzig, Union Berlin, Borussia Dortmund, VfB Stuttgart and 1. FSV Mainz 05.
Kabak spat in the direction of Ludwig Augustinsson in the 26th minute of the Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen. Referee Markus Schmidt, from Stuttgart, stated that he did not see the incident, meaning that the DFB was able to intervene and punish the player after the match. The 20-year-old had already issued a public apology for his actions to his opponent.
