In the game against FC Ingolstadt (0: 1) Dresden's Max Kulke had to leave the pitch after just four minutes. Now the DFB sports court has passed a judgment.
Dynamo Dresden has to do without its right-back Kulke for a game, as the DFB announced in a message. In addition, Kulke is banned from all other championship games until the suspension expires.
Shortly after the game kicked off in Ingolstadt, 19-year-old Ingolstadt's Stefan Kutschke fouled in the penalty area. Referee Martin Thomsen did not wait long and pulled out the red card. Kutschke then converted the penalty and thus ensured the 1-0 winning goal for the Ingolstadt team.
In Saturday's home game against SV Meppen, Dynamo's coach Markus Kauczinski has to find a replacement for the suspended Kulke, who has played five times for Dresden this season.
