Spanish side Sevilla are lending their support to the beleaguered Spanish cucumber farmers community, who have been blamed for a deadly outbreak of E. coli in Germany, by sewing patches onto the sleeves of the pre-season strips that read ‘I ♥ Cucumbers’.

Sevilla president Jose Maria Del Nido said the message was ‘in defense of the cucumber of Murcia, after the war it had with Germany over the cucumber’.

Fight the power Jose, fight the power.
