It seems incredible but true; Kevin Prince Boateng received a fine of 2,000 Euros for having sported a white shirt with a dedication to the victims of the earthquake in Italy.
The former Milan player after scoring in the race won by his Las Palmas against Granada wanted to send a message dedicated to the country where he lived for several years.
Despite the goodness of thought and gesture, the player will be fined by the Spanish Football Federation under Article 91 of the Disciplinary Code
“The player who, during achievements or any other cause resulting from the vicissitudes of the game, showing a jersey that makes visible advertising, slogans, acronyms, anagrams or drawings, whatever they are and whatever the content or purpose of ‘ action will be punished as the perpetrator of a serious offense against co fined up to 3,000 Euros and a warning. “
There is a precedent, in 2014, it happened as a player of Real Jaén, the team currently in the Spanish second division was fined for showing a message in support of children with cancer after scoring a goal.
In that case, after several appeals, the Committee of the Federation decided to cancel the sanction and probably “the case Boateng” will continue with an appeal by the player or the company to prevent such an injustice.
The Ghanaian international joined Las Palmas on a one-year deal after leaving Italian giants AC Milan.
