Prosecutors want 10-month sentence for keeper kick

Prosecutors want 10-month sentence for keeper kick

A spokesman says prosecutors have demanded a 10-month prison term for the football hooligan who attacked AZ Alkmaar's goalkeeper during a Dutch cup match against Ajax.
The hooligan, identified under Dutch privacy laws only as Wesley van W., ran onto the Amsterdam Arena pitch on Dec. 21 and tried to kick goalkeeper Esteban Alvarado from behind. The Costa Rican keeper spun around and parried the attack before twice kicking the hooligan as he lay on the turf.
Prosecution spokesman Otto van der Bijl said Thursday prosecutors also want Amsterdam District Court judges to order Van W. to report to police every time Ajax plays a home game.
The match was halted after the attack with Ajax leading 1-0. The match is to be replayed in full next month.
