Dries Mertens has received a 2 match suspension for his retribution action against Rodney Sneijder. The Belgium international tried to hit his opponent with an intentional swing.
This week,PSV received a settlement proposal of 2 matches, the club had the option to appeal to the decision, but decided to accept the proposal. In the most recent game against RKC, Mertens felt aggrevated after losing the ball against Rodney Sneijder, with that said, the little man swung at him with the intention of hitting him.
This is the third occasion whereas a PSV player is being placed in negative daylight. PSV have to take retributions or it will damage their reputation.
The 25-year-old will miss the matches against Roda JC and Willem II.
