Mark-Jan Fledderus delivers a blow on debut for Groningen fourth-division team: ‘I shouldn’t let myself be provoked’

After his periods as technical director at Heracles and FC Groningen, Mark-Jan Fledderus is now technical manager at the Eredivisie CV. He also put on his football boots again last Saturday, on his debut for fourth division HSC from Sappemeer in Groningen. That went well, until he lost his control for a moment and punched an opponent in the face. “Everyone knows that I am a temperamental player, but I should not let myself be provoked.”
