Jahovikj suspended 3 games, in talks to leave Wil

Adis JahovikjStriker Adis Jahovikj has been suspended three games by the Swiss Football Association for unsportsmanlike conduct towards a referee, and it was also discovered on Thursday that Jahovikj is in negotiations with an unnamed club to leave Wil.

This past Monday, in a league match between Wil and Biel, Jahovikj was shown two yellow cards, the second coming in stoppage time of the 90th minute, leading to a red card and dismissal.  Usually, by picking up two yellow cards in a game, the norm is a one game suspension.  However, the referee, in his match report, wrote that Jahovikj demonstrated unsportsmanlike conduct after the second booking.  The referee in question is Stephan Klossner.  On Thursday, the Swiss Football Association (SFA) ruled that Jahovikj would be suspended for three games.

Facing Biel has been bad luck for Jahovikj.  Last August, in a match between Wil and Biel, Jahovikj was suspended 10 games for threatening a referee after he was given a red card in that game as well.  That ban was ultimately reduced to five games upon an appeal.

That was not the only news concerning Jahovikj on Thursday.  Wil played a friendly against Zürich as well, but Adis was not with the team.  Wil coach Axel Thoma said, “Jahovikj is involved in negotiations with another team.  He can bring the most value to the team.  The fact that some of our players are wanted by other clubs is a good sign for our ability to develop players.”

Thoma would not name the team that is negotiating with Jahovikj.  If the team is from abroad, then a transfer must get done by the end of this Saturday on 31 August.  If, however, the unnamed club is from within Switzerland, then a transfer can also occur until the end of September.  As a matter of fact, Jahovikj was loaned from Wil to Zürich in late September of last year.
