Sarpreet Singh Sent Off: The highs and lows of a professional footballer hey! Sarpreet Singh made his Bayern Munich debut only two weeks ago. Since then he has been promoted to the first-team squad. On Sunday Sarpreet Singh’s return to the club’s reserve team didn’t go to plan as he was sent off for the first time in his career.
The Bayern Munich midfielder was sent off 39 minutes into Bayern Munich II’s 1-1 draw with Wurzburger Kickers. Was it a red card though?
Singh was dismissed for what was described as a cynical foul on Wurzburger’s Dave Gnaase, purposely kicking his opponent’s legs as he looked to break through midfield.
Although he made no attempt to win the ball, the decision did appear a tad harsh. The tactical foul, or taking one for the team seemed to something the ref was not going to stand for as he brandished a straight red for Sarpreet Singh.
Despite playing most of the game with 10 men, it was Bayern who scored first through striker Kwasi Okyere Wriedt. But his 80th-minute strike was cancelled out moments later by Wurzburger’s Leroy Kwadwo, the stalemate extending the team’s winless run to six games.
With Germany’s football leagues stopping for a month during winter, Singh will return home to New Zealand for Christmas before linking up with Bayern at a training camp in Qatar in the New Year.
