Referee Siemen Mulder explained the second yellow card he gave to Jordens Peters after the duel between Willem II and ADO Den Haag. However, the 37-year-old arbitrator fully supports his decision.
A number of decisions taken by Mulder during the competition are under discussion. Thus, a hit from a corner of William II was rejected in the nineteenth minute. Kwasi Wriedt would have harassed Martin Fraisl prior to the ADO goalkeeper, while Wriedt himself also got a push. Further in the first half, Ricardo Kishna did not get a penalty on the other side, while Pol Llonch did hit him.
The most striking thing was that Mulder Willem II Captain Jordens Peters gave his second yellow card in the 75th minute, after making a slide on the ball. The arbitrator shall continue to support that decision in dialogue with ESPN. “He comes at high speed, with a straight leg, into it. He takes that player in the scissors. I think it‘s unbeatable. That is a yellow card for me, and it already had yellow.”
“He uses the two-legged tackle”, continues Mulder while watching the images. It can be seen that Peters held back his left leg, which mainly made his right leg contact with ADO player Jonas Arweiler “It’s my decision and I support it”, concludes Mulder.
