Kazim-Richards accused of assaulting Vitesse midfielder

Vitesse Arnhem midfielder Zakaria Labyad claimed that Feyenoord forward Colin Kazim-Richards assaulted him in the tunnel after the match at De Kuip.

Feyenoord lost the heated game 4-1 at home but the incident was reported to have occurred in the tunnel after the match.

”He gave me a slap in the players’ tunnel. On the field, we had words. Once inside he kept looking for me,” Labyad was quoted as saying on Football Oranje.

“When we walked in the tunnel he was waiting for me. He is apparently a big guy off the field, but in the field, a pussy. During the match he showed no balls.”

Labyad claims he did not retaliate and stated that the attack should have been recorded on the cameras in the tunnels.

What I wanted to do in return? No, I wouldn’t make my hands dirty on a pussy. Anyway, there are also cameras in the tunnels and it’s good that it will have recorded the hit,” he added.

The KNVB could take retrospective action if Kazim-Richards is found guilty of abusing Labyad.

Richards signed a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee with Feyenoord, joining from Bursaspor on a free transfer.

The former Arsenal youth has been in impressive form on loan at the Dutch giants this season.

Kazim Richards has scored 12 goals and provided eight assists in all competitions for Feyenoord this season.
