The ref gave Esteban red and the AZ coach took all his players off the pitch because he couldn't guarantee the safety of his players.
The match is discontinued.
To be continued.
I saw that. That was abosolutely nuts. It's like a Pepe moment. Estenban should be punished for those actions. You simply dont kick some one even if he tried to attack you.
Gonna be interesting at what is going to happen. Ajax will definitely be punished as well.
What happened was the right thing. Esteban should have never been punished. Allow me to explain:
I was there, in the stadium. The guy actually sat like 10 metres away from me. He was able to walk up to the field and walk towards Esteban. Esteban was in luck that he saw the guy just in time, otherwise he could be injured terribly. Because this "supporter" came at him with a flying kick aiming for his back.
Esteban reacted quickly and started kicking the guy. Later he claimed that he was kicking him because he thought the guy had a knife. Which seems to me like a pretty good reason to kick a guy who just tried to kick you in the back. Esteban just tried to keep the guy down. Self defense
