Feyenoord suspend Colin Kazim-Richards until Feb. 1

Feyenoord confirmed on Monday that they have suspended Colin Kazim-Richards from training and matches until Feb. 1 in response to his recent behaviour towards a journalist.

Kazim-Richards, 29, was unhappy with an article in Algemeen Dagblad newspaper which questioned his attitude, according to a BBC report.

The London-born Turkey international reportedly confronted the reporter when he arrived at a prematch news conference, and the club dropped him from their squad for Sunday's 2-0 loss to PSV.

He has been banned from training or playing until Feb. 1, when Feyenoord said they would "re-evaluate the situation."

An official statement from Feyenoord read: "The club has applied this measure in response to the behaviour exhibited by the assailant on Jan. 15.

"The suspension means that Kazim-Richards will not be at the club, will not train, and will not play in any games, until the end of the month."
