Maaskant faces KNVB investigation over dugout punch

Topics

The Dutch Football Federation (KNVB) are investigating an incident that saw NAC Breda coach Robert Maaskant punch a hole in his dugout.

NAC Breda coach Robert Maaskant has been asked to provide a written statement to the Dutch Football Federation (KNVB) after punching a hole in a dugout during Saturday's 2-2 draw against Dordrecht.

The Breda coach smashed the side of his dugout during the Eredivisie stalemate, having seen his side surrender a two-goal lead after the break.

Adnane Tighadouini's brace gave Breda a 2-0 lead against bottom side Dordrecht, but, after haphazard defending led to Everon Pisas' 69th-minute equaliser, Maaskant's frustrations began to show.

The Dutchman punched a hole in the side of his dugout and must now respond to the KNVB.

Breda are on course to finish in the relegation play-off places, although a win on Saturday would have seen Maaskant's men move out of the bottom three.
