Christoph Scherr and Dino Kessler
Ante Turmanen is very angry. Despite the big win on Saturday against the champion Zug. the reason? Injury goalkeeper Jorn van Putelberge. This is involved in a first-third collision of Zug striker Jerome Bachovner as he leaves the goal circle to clear a rebound. After the race was over, Van Puttelberge stood still, and the guard must finally be lifted off the ice on a stretcher. The referees punish the action with a penalty kick for 5 minutes. Without exceptions left.
“Only the dirty players do that.”
“A horrible mistake, which I find hard to understand,” Tormanen said. The fact that Bachovner is walking away without a residual exit infuriates Bale’s coach. “He doesn’t even look at the disc, he just looks for the check. I hope he gets ten match bans because only dirty players do.”
“…It is not the first time something like this has happened to you.”
And the 51-year-old goes even better: “I don’t know if these actions come from the coaches, because it’s not the first time something like this has happened to them.”
No more action by the league – EVZ stays quiet
Should EVZ coaches encourage their players to injure opponents? EVZ reacted quietly to the fierce accusation – despite Törmänen’s verbal errors right after the match. Head of Sports Rito Clay: “We are sorry that the goalkeeper injured himself in this act, but there was no ill intent. The goalkeeper leaves the goal fold and chases the disc, which results in a collision with a player who is also chasing the disc. There is nothing else to say about it” .
The league has already closed the case without taking further action. If Van Putelberghi is absent for a longer period of time, Dmitriy Sheikin is indeed a substitute. The Russian recently moved to Sealand as a cover and did well in his first two appearances. Damien Brunner may also be missing on Monday against Lugano. The 36-year-old once again felt his blow against Zug and was unable to finish the match. However, the striker says he should be fit in the (pre) qualifiers.
