Ew. Ew. EW!
A “piss attack” against a player in the fourth division of Swiss football has prompted outrage and concern over a lack of security in the lower leagues.
According to Swiss newspaper Blick, FC Muri goalkeeper Reto Felder was the target of a prank by FC Baden fans behind his net during their match on Saturday.
The fans allegedly asked a ball boy to hand them Felder’s water bottle while he wasn’t looking. The fans quickly emptied, then re-filled the bottle with urine.
The next time Felder took a drink from the bottle there was a huge uproar from the fans behind him: “You have been infected! You have AIDS,” the report says.
Felder complained about still feeling nauseous the following day and planned to seek out a doctor on Monday.
Unsurprisingly, Muri coach Beat Hubeli was outraged:
“That’s from the bottom drawer. I’ve played football all my life and experienced a lot, but this surpasses everything.”
FC Baden president Thomi Bram was horrified by his fans’ actions and promised to launch an internal investigation.
“This is a serious abuse of fair play if it has actually happened that way,” Bram said.
