Cat gets Besiktas in trouble with UEFA
Turkish soccer club Besiktas ended up in trouble with European soccer’s governing body, UEFA, after a cat sneaked on to the pitch during their Champions League match against Bayern Munich.
Besiktas have been charged by Uefa after a cat ran on to the pitch during Wednesday’s Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich.
The match was stopped early in the second half after the animal jumped from an advertising hoarding and ran to near a corner flag, just off the playing area, before leaping back into the stand, the Guardian reported.
The charge alleges “insufficient organisation” and was among three issued to the Turkish club by Uefa. The others relate to the throwing of objects and blocked stairways during Bayern’s 3-1 win, which took the German club through 8-1 on aggregate.
