Stuttgart has been banned for three months due to over false identity
VfB Stuttgart striker Silas Katompa Mvumpa was banned from all competitions for three months and fined 30,000 euros after revealing he had been playing under a false identity for years.
Known until last week as Silas Wamangituka, the striker revealed that his name and birth date were different and that the data had been changed years ago by a former agent who controlled him as a teenager.
“It was clear to him and us that Silas was going to be sanctioned by the DFB, and that’s the way it has to be according to the by-laws,” said Stuttgart sporting director Sven Mislintat following the decision by the German Football Association (DFB).
