Dortmund’s Kevin Grosskreutz Publicly Apologises After Attacking Cologne Fan With His Doner Kebab

France Soccer Champions League

Borussia Dortmund workhorse Kevin Grosskreutz has publicly apologised after shutting-up a gobby Cologne fan on a night out by ramming his kebab into the chap’s face.

It would appear that the Cologne fan was part of a group who were chanting vaguely insulting things at Grosskreutz right up until the point that the Dortmund midfielder snapped and launched his doner kebab at the 34-year-old man.

“I perceived the situation as insulting and it offended my privacy,” Grosskreutz is quoted as saying by (we know, we know).

“Of course, it would have been better if I hadn’t thrown the doner in public. There is no doubt that this situation isn’t ideal. I’m sorry.”

According to reports, the incident left the Cologne fan with “burning eyes” (that’ll be the chilli sauce!) with the police later confirming that a complaint was filed against Grosskreutz.

“It is true that a complaint was filed against Mr Grosskreutz,” the police spokesman said. “We have started a criminal case for wilful injury.”

Fun, fun, fun!

    With a name like Gross Krauts this should not be surprising.

    Although I imagine a drunk, aggressive insulting fan getting a kebab mushed in his face would be a satisfying sight.

    intriguing! the German version of Goal (!)(as of other sports-pages) reads like this:

    “of course it would have been better to not having thrown the doner down to the ground.”

    down… ground…,
    straight… face…,
    well, we’ll see.
