The consequences of the VAN GELDER-decision on football


Dutch gymnast Yuri VAN GELDER was expelled from the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro by the Dutch Olympic Committee for violating the team’s code of conduct after a drink-fuelled night out. It also occurs in football that clubs may impose disciplinary measures against a player in case of misbehaviour. This mostly happens on the basis of vague contractual terms or internal disciplinary regulations of the club, just like the clause included in the athlete-agreement of VAN GELDER .
