Besiktas may have been well and truly trebucheted out of the Champions League on Wednesday night, losing 8-1 on aggregate to Bayern Munich, but the Turkish side refused to go quietly.

As per usual, the Vodafone Arena was a cauldron of hostility throughout the match despite Bayern sauntering to victory and, as per usual, it looks like Besiktas are going to have to answer a raft of UEFA charges in the aftermath.

Indeed, it would appear that, as well as the standard terrace misbehaviour, the Black Eagles have also been stung for allowing a little ginger cat to encroach onto the pitch and disrupt the match for several minutes.

Unduly harsh, but hey ho.

That said, the “animal on the pitch” charge isn’t specifically listed in the itemised disciplinary breakdown on UEFA’s official website.

However, it may be included as part of the wider “insufficient organisation” charge levelled against the club.

Still, harsh.
