Samuel Asamoah was sent off in a game in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League over the weekend for displaying his undershirt with the writings ‘Jesus Loves You’.
The Ghanaian native midfielder scored a hattrick in his club’s massive 5-2 win over KAS Eupen but due to his celebration display he couldn’t finish the game as he was sent off.
Before his third goal was scored, the Sint Truiden midfielder had been booked for a foul alreaady. So after his third goal, out of excitement, he raised his jersey to reveal the dreaded message ‘Jesus Loves You’.
This action didn’t go down well with the referee as he did not hesitate to show him the red card which sent him off.
Speaking to the press after the game, Samuel Asamoah revealed that the action he thought initially was not offensive but later realized that it went against the Belgian Football regulations.
He promised to bounce back to score more goals and be more cautions next time.
