The name may not be instantly familiar, but Esbjerg FB forward Nicki Bille Nielsen is, in technical terms, a bit of a bloody toe-rag.
As a younger man, Nicki Bille was infamous for his extracurricular distractions. Indeed, he once found himself staring down the barrel of an eight-year prison sentence for biting a policeman on a boozy night out in Copenhagen. This was after he kicked a parking meter and had to be subdued with pepper spray.
The 27-year-old has calmed down somewhat since his run in with the law, but still retains that ne’er-do-well demeanour.
As such, it should come as no surprise to learn that our Nicki celebrated his dramatic injury-time penalty equaliser against Hobro by charging over to the crowd, nabbing a fan’s pint and promptly spilling it all down himself…
Ex-Vancouver Whitecaps hard nut Willie Johnston most definitely approves.
