Ghana midfielder Samuel Asamoah was sent off in the Belgian league after partially taking off his jersey to display a religious message.
Asamoah was sent off after receiving a second yellow card in St. Truiden’s 5-2 victory over Eupen on Saturday.
The 25-year-old was in superb form as his goals helped his club come from behind to seal a massive victory.
The midfielder scored his first in the 42nd minute and added another in the 45th minute, before completing his hat-trick in the 63rd minute.
However, Asamoah did not complete the game, as he received his marching orders in the second half for partially taking off his shirt.
Asamoah had received his first booking in the 53rd minute and was sent off 12 minutes later after scoring and partially pulling off his shirt to display the message “Jesus loves you.”
Speaking in the aftermath of the game, the midfielder said scoring a hat-trick made him so emotional.
