Dennis misses Club Brugge game due to disciplinary suspension


Emmanuel Dennis is missing from Club Brugge's selection tonight due to a disciplinary suspension.

The Belgian team will then play against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

"Dennis is missing for disciplinary reasons, because he has not followed a few rules. I do not want to say more about it," said trainer Philippe Clement at a press conference.

A heated discussion in the player's bus would have been the last straw for the coach.

This followed after Dennis allegedly sat on the bus in a place that was not available due to the corona rules.

Dennis then angrily left the bus, which left for Dortmund without the attacker.

Elia denounces critics after 'camera incident'


Eljero Elia thinks that

FOX Sports

poked fun at him during the showing of images after FC Utrecht's match against PEC Zwolle.

It could be seen that the substitute attacker talked to a cameraman, according to FOX, to get a story about why he was so emphatically portrayed.

"I only asked if he had an earpiece in, because I thought someone from FOX might ask him to film me specifically," Elia responds on Instagram.

"But otherwise he just does his job. If I don't want to be filmed, I shouldn't have gone on football. Well, people on TV always have something to say. I'll just leave them, but you shouldn't make fun of me. I meet those people again and then they want to greet me. But I hope you won't, really. "
