Pieters loses cool in comeback

19 January 2013 14:20

PSV's Erik Pieters was hospitalised after punching through a glass window in anger following his dismissal in his team's 3-1 loss to PEC Zwolle.

The Netherlands international featured for the first time in an official game since April 2012 after a lengthy injury layoff, but his comeback did not pan out as he was hoping for.

Not only were PSV surprisingly beaten by PEC, but Pieters was also handed a straight red card following a late tackle in midfield in the 67th minute.

The 24-year-old then lost his temper and kicked out at a door on his way to the tunnel, before smashing his arm through a glass window, sustaining cuts that led to his hospitalisation.

PSV dropped to second spot in the league table following Friday's defeat, handing Twente top spot.
