For breaking the coronavirus-related safety controls in practice meetings, Austrian Bundesliga leaders LASK have been docked 12 focuses.
LASK admitted to staging full contact training meetings ahead of the proposed top-flight restart on June 2, despite the fact that all clubs were just cleared in small gatherings to get back on the pitch.
In any case, before the claims from different clubs were even released, LASK gave its statement claiming that they were casualties of “industrial spying.”
LASK gave an open apology for violating protocols of social distance yet was ultimately unable to avoid a serious reprimand.
Football authorities in Austria affirmed Thursday that the club was hit with a point derivation and a €75,000 fine.
LASK has been docked 12 focuses, yet there will be six focuses deducted from the aggregate for each team, with the league separated into two gatherings.
The club released an official statement announcing their goal to appeal the decision, which reads: “This afternoon we got the Senate 1 decision orally. We chose to call the Bundesliga fight panel as a second-instance body after investigating the current decision.
Because of the choice, LASK tumbled to second in the Bundesliga standings, three focuses behind the supreme champions and Red Bull Salzburg arch-rivals.
In any case, Valerien Ismael ‘s side will have the chance to close the gap when the campaign resumes, as they look to maintain the solid structure that they appeared at the start of the year.
There are as yet 10 matches left to play in the season, and after being embarrassed by Manchester United in the Europa League, LASK will probably have the option to concentrate all their attention on residential obligations.
The Austrian outfit was beaten 5-0 not long before the season was delayed in March in the main leg of their last 16 ties at home to the Red Devils, with it not yet known when or if the opposition will be finished over the summer.
