Sweden’s seventh tier

Sweden daily Aftonbladet have printed a crazy story from the seventh tier of football in the country.

The match in question involved Järna SK’s B-team and Pershagen SK.

In the final moments of the match, Pershagen SK’s Adam Lindin Ljungkvist, was sent off for receiving a bizarre second yellow card.

According to Ljungkvist, he was sent off for farting.

Dodgy stomach & gas

Ljungkvist spoke to Aftonbladet about his dismissal:

It was a strange decision, I can hardly believe it myself.

I had a bad stomach and in the last minute (of the match) I farted.

Then the referee came over and gave me a yellow card, then a red card.

It was my second warning, although I completely forgot about the first (warning). I was a little angry at the ref, I could not quite believe what had happened.

All I can assume is that the ref thought I was farting on an opponent. But to provoke anyone with a fart is not particularly smart or normal.

I farted and I got the red card. The ref said it was unsportsmanlike behaviour.
