Former Manchester City midfielder Paul Bosvelt has been handed a community service sentence after becoming involved in a fight earlier this year.
SoccerNews have today reported Bosvelt was given this sentence by the Dutch courts after he became involved in a fight during Go Ahead Eagles promotion celebrations. Bosvelt is currently a coach with Dutch side Go Ahead Eagles, and in May the club staged an after party following their promotion to the Eredivisie.
However, things got out of hand, which led to Bosvelt being arrested. Bosvelt’s lawyer confirmed his client has apologised to all those involved, but wouldn’t be drawn on the exact conditions of his sentence.
Bosvelt spent two seasons at Manchester City, making over 53 league appearances for the Premier League side. The Dutchman will be best known for his time with Feyenoord where he won the Dutch league.
Bosvelt also made 24 appearances for Holland.
