Football: Liverpool goalie Charles Itandje punished for laughing

The british club temporary banned him from the first team after a TV tape that showed him joking at the Hillsborough ceremony.

Charles Itandje, who is a French talented goalkeeper, was laughing and joking at the memorial ceremony for the victims of Hillsborough tragedy. This behaviour was deeply offensive for the family of those victims, as well as for thousands of Liverpool FC fans.

The TV images show Itandje smiling and trying to make team mate Damian Plessis, who didn't react to the jokes.

Liverpool coach Rafael Benítez contact him last friday to communicate the decision and keeping him from assisting to the training session. This sanction will last 14 days, according to official sources.
