Feyenoord confirmed on Monday that they have suspended Colin Kazim-Richards from training and matches until Feb. 1 in response to his recent behaviour towards a journalist.
Kazim-Richards, 29, was unhappy with an article in Algemeen Dagblad newspaper which questioned his attitude, according to a BBC report.
The London-born Turkey international reportedly confronted the reporter when he arrived at a prematch news conference, and the club dropped him from their squad for Sunday's 2-0 loss to PSV.
