The most controversial moment of the Vitesse ? PSV game was undoubtedly the sending-off of Michael Dingsdag in the 62nd minute. The Vitesse defender had hit PSV striker Gerald Sibon in the face and was shown a straight red card by referee Bossen.Vitesse coach Edward Sturing admitted that the decision taken by Bossen after consulting the fourth official Reinold Wiedemeijer was correct, but he added that a flying tackle on Dingsdag one minute before should also have been noticed. ?Dinsgdag was fouled badly one minute before?, explained Sturing. ?Of course it wasn?t a clever thing to take revenge in such a way and I simply can?t justify such an action. But there is certainly a link between those two incidents.?Guus Hiddink was not content the match was suspended on 67 minutes, as PSV were on top, also from a psychological point of view. Bossen suspended the game for fifteen minutes, as the Vitesse supporters kept on chanting terms of abuse. ?I didn?t really hear much chanting, as I was concentrated on the game?, said Hiddink. ?Bit I think it?s better to carry on. It?s a caricature to react to the crowd?s response. I just wanted to carry on as soon as possible.?
