Olimpia to sanction players for receiving money from Vice President Suriname

The Honduran Olympia announced this Sunday the application of “disciplinary measures” to the players of the club who received money after last Tuesday’s game against Inter Moengo, from Suriname, by the Surinamese vice president, which has led to the disqualification of both teams from the 2021 Concacaf League.

The Honduran club through a statement stated that has been notified of the CONCACAF decision and regretted that his participation in the tournament did not end as he would have liked.

The Concacaf Disciplinary Committee has thoroughly investigated the facts that threaten integrity, evidenced by the video that circulated on social networks after the match between Inter Moengo Tapoe against Olimpia, in which it is seen how the vice president of Suriname, Ronnie Brunswijk, 60-year-old owner of Inter and who also played in the game, is in the dressing room of Olympia and distributes money to the club’s footballers Honduran.

Olimpia accepts that “mistakes were made” by some footballers who “They do not represent the values ​​and principles of the club.”

The board of directors of Olympia “take disciplinary measures within our institution, since the consequences of these errors have caused our beloved club enormous damage to the image of a team that has always carried the name of Honduran football high, “the statement said.

Concacaf announced the day before that Inter Moengo and Olimpia have been disqualified and withdrawn from the Concacaf League.

“After evaluating the actions in the video and considering the written statements provided by both clubs, the Disciplinary Committee determined that serious integrity infractions occurred after the game“, He said in a statement.
