From Cantona’s Ballon D’Or Speech to Bernardo Silva being investigated on racism for sharing a cartoon on Twitter, football in 2019 hasn’t lacked any bruh moments. In a bizzare news of Croatia, a player got sent off for killing a chicken.
Chickens had ran onto the pitch during the game between NK Jelengrad & Jasenovac in a semi-professional match on Saturday afternoon. 23 year old , Ivan Gazdek of Jelengrad in frustration took a swipe at one of those , killing it as a result. He picked up the body and threw it beyond the pitch boundaries. The referee had a straight red for Gazdek.
Speaking to local news website 24 Sata, Gazdek revealed that the referee gave him his marching orders and sent him off for ‘unsportsmanlike conduct’.
“Believe me, it was not intentional. The result was far from certain at that moment and I was nervous.
“Chickens are constantly entering the field, so the game must be stopped. The terrain is full of faeces, these are unhygienic conditions.
“I ran to the chickens a little to chase them away, I swung my foot and killed one by accident, f*** it.”
Gazdek later apologized to the lady who owned the chickens and also bought her a new one to compensate for his bizarre moment.
