A mad story has focused attention in German today concerning Paderborn’s 29-year-old striker Nick Proschwitz.
Proschwitz has previously spent time in England playing for Hull, Barnsley and Coventry.
The German attacker seems destined to be in search of a new club, after he did something incredibly stupid on a club trip to Turkey over the weekend.
According to a report first printed in Bild, Proschwitz pulled down his trousers in Turkey on Saturday night to flash his privates at a female employee.
Proschwitz was reportedly exposed for 20 seconds.
The striker was also claimed to be drunk at the time.
The incident happened shortly after midnight in the team’s five-star hotel.
Proschwitz has since been expelled from the camp, while it seems that his future at the club is over. Paderborn president Wilfried Finke has said:
Nick Proschwitz doesn’t belong to our squad anymore. I looked into the issue and have taken the necessary action.
A player who reveals himself in front of a woman in a foreign country will not be tolerated by us.
Proschwitz has tried to defend himself saying:
I didn’t have any underpants on under my jogging trousers. One of the lads pulled my trousers down – but that was only for a second or so.
As for the unannmed female employee, she has also defended the footballer:
At no point was I sexually harassed.
The only thing that has harassed me is the false media reports.
We barely noticed the fact that a player came into the room, pulled his trousers down and then immediately left.
