Xerez has had a terrible season. They currently sit in last place in Spain’s second division. As their relegation from Liga Adelante looms, fans made sure to drive the message home that they are not happy with the club’s performance.

Upon arrival at their training field, players and coaches were met with each of their names on individual crucifixes. Below is a video showing a handful of the different players and coaches’ names.

Let’s hope Xerez can rise from the dead in Spain’s third division next season.

Some fans show how unhappy they are with their club by booing or jeering players. Some fans boycott games. The fans of Serbian second division Mačva Šabac show their disdain in an altogether different and far more harrowing way though.

On the morning of their game on Sunday against Bane Raška, club officials found something catching their eye in the center circle of the pitch. Much to their shock, a crucifix had been buried into the grass by perpetrators who had broken in the night before.

Even more worrying is the message displayed on the crucifix, translated as “Second division or this”.

Šabac managed to win their weekend encounter, putting themselves just two points behind second place in the league. There’s certainly better ways to motivate your side though, surely?

Check the video above for the footage. Creepy!
