The criminal trial for attempted murder against 50-time Dutch soccer international Quincy Promes begins on October 21 in Amsterdam. This was confirmed by the public prosecutor’s office De Telegraaf.
Promes is accused of stabbing a nephew in the knee at a family party in July 2020, seriously injuring him. The process was originally supposed to start last March. After further investigative findings, the public prosecutor’s office complicated the charge of attempted manslaughter with severe abuse to attempted murder.
At the time of the crime, Promes was under contract with Ajax Amsterdam. In early 2021, the 30-year-old moved to Spartak Moscow. Promes previously played for Twente Enschede, Go Ahead Eagles and Sevilla FC, among others.
As long as the criminal investigations are ongoing, Bonds coach Louis van Gaal will refrain from Promes with the national team. The offensive player played his last game for Oranje at the European Championship in summer 2021 against the Czech Republic in Hungary.
