Australian soccer club’s fans throw snakes at player who switched to rival team – CBS sports.com (blog)
Saturday’s Sydney Derby between Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers didn’t bring anything in terms of goals, but it brought so much more.
During the 0-0 match, goalkeeper Vedran Janjetovic was front and center. Having played for Sydney FC from 2012-16, he just switched to Western and the fans let him have it by throwing snakes on his goal. Take a look.
Here’s another look.
That’s pretty nuts, but that animosity isn’t rare in world soccer when a player switches to a rival club, with the snake being symbolic of what the former club thins he has become. And, we are pretty sure those are fake, toy snakes. Still disgusting.
But that if you want to get someone good, there is always witchcraft.
