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.
