Quincy Promes, striker for Spartak Moscow and representative of the Netherlands national team, confessed that he stabbed his cousin in some secret recordings revealed by the police handling the case, according to the Dutch media NOS.

The case is being prosecuted by the Dutch Public Ministry for attempted murder. Police revealed a series of recordings of calls Promes made to his family the night after the attack on his cousin.

“You can say: alcohol, because if I was that drunk, I would have had it at the beginning of the party. I waited well”, says the international soccer player with the Netherlands blaming himself for the fact. Until now Quincy Promes had denied the accusations, but his confession recorded by the Police changes his legal situation.

The maximum sentence for a crime of serious bodily injury is up to four years. in the Netherlands.

The incident occurred in December 2020, when Promes, then an Ajax player, was arrested on suspicion of a stabbing that occurred in July. The attack would have occurred during a family celebration, in a warehouse owned by Promes located in Abcoude, a small town 14 kilometers from Amsterdam.

After a strong argument, the 30-year-old footballer would have stabbed his cousin with a knife, who was seriously injured. Some partygoers got between Promes and the victim, which would have prevented the event from being more serious.

Spartak Moscow has not issued a statement on this latest information about the Dutchman’s case. The player is still in full swing with the team and this weekend he scored a goal in the (0-2) victory over Dinamo in the Moscow derby.
