Joeri Van der Velde – The grinch who ruined Christmas
Remember the name as the man who ruined Christmas – step forward Joeri Van Der Velde.
This is the man who booked Charleroi player Giuseppe Rossini for displaying his undershirt during his side’s game against Mons.
Rossini’s short was displaying a message to his recently passed grandfather, wishing him to rest in peace alongside the picture of a cross. The player was visibly affected, bursting into tears after his goal whilst issuing the gesture.
In a gesture of his own, the referee showed the crying player a yallow card.
