The defender has been widely criticised for what has been seen as unsporting behaviour during the match. With Bertrand Traore on the ground, Veltman indicated to Sparta player Ivan Calero that he wanted to stop play, but when his opponent turned his back, Veltman continued to play and put in a dangerous cross which eventually came to nothing. Watch the incident below.

Taking to Twitter, Veltman has apologised for his behaviour, tweeting, “Coming back on my action and reaction in regards to yesterday’s game against Sparta, and in particular to Iván Calero. My sincere apologies! Looking back, I should not have done this.”
