In what Swiss newspaper Blick is rather bluntly calling a “Piss-Attacke,” the fourth tier of Swiss football has been shaken by a truly disgusting “urine scandal” which cracked off during the weekend fixture between FC Muri and FC Baden.
This from Blick (you’ll have to excuse the slightly patchy translation):
Later Saturday afternoon…during the course of the second half, the Baden fans behind the goal of Muri goalkeeper Reto Felder prompted a ball boy to give them Felder’s water bottle.
The bottle was quickly emptied and then filled with urine.
The next time Felder took a drink from the bottle there was a huge noise from the fans behind him: “You have been infected! You have AIDS!”
Told you it was disgusting.
Felder reportedly complained about feeling nauseated later that afternoon but refused to seek a medical evaluation.
Unsurprisingly, Muri coach Beat Hubeli wasn’t amused, telling Blick:
“That’s from the bottom drawer. I’ve played football all my life and experienced a lot, but that surpasses everything.”
Baden president Thomi Bram was equally appalled at the behaviour of his team’s fans.
“This is a serious abuse of fair play if it has actually happened that way,” he said, before vowing to launch an internal investigation into the Piss-Attacke.
However, it seems as though Baden fans have a bit of a reputation for being repulsive arseholes in the Swiss lower league community, with Hubeli adding that he is now ready to make a formal complaint to the local football association.
“Every game against Baden is a high-risk game,” Hubeli added. “I am convinced these fans will try again.”
Now if you’ll excuse us, we’ve got to find something to chunder into.
