PSV Eindhoven: A fan has been given a 40-year stadium ban for an attack on Sevilla goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic.

PSV Eindhoven has barred a fan from entering their stadium for 40 years after he was found guilty of assaulting Sevilla goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic during a Europa League match.

The 20-year-old man, who was already on a national stadium ban and should not have been in the stadium, was sentenced to three months in prison.

He was also barred for two years from the area around PSV’s Philips Stadium.

The Dutch club has also stated that it will seek financial compensation from him.

PSV will face a hefty fine after Uefa opened a disciplinary case against them in the aftermath of the incident.

The pitch invader, who PSV said entered the stadium with a ticket purchased by a friend, was already serving a national stadium ban imposed by the Dutch football association until 2026.

He punched Serb Dmitrovic in the face near the end of the play-off second leg at the end of February. The former Charlton goalkeeper wrestled the man to the ground before being led away by stewards.

Dmitrovic was able to continue as Sevilla fell 2-0 on the night but prevailed 3-2 on aggregate.

The six-time Europa League champions from Spain will face Manchester United in the quarter-finals.
