A footballer was sent off for killing a chicken ‘accidentally’ while swinging his boot.

Croatian amateur player Ivan Gazdek, playing for FK Zelengrad, said he was attempting to chase a group of birds away.

He then killed one before being sent off, with the home side winning by a single goal. They went on to win their match 8-1.

 “Believe me, it wasn’t intentional” said Ivan.

He went on to explain “The game was in a sensitive moment and I was nervous. Even in the dressing room, we had had a bit of a fight.

“Chickens are constantly entering the field, so the game has to be stopped. The grass is covered in bird poo, it’s very unhygienic.

“I ran to the chickens a little to chase them away, I swung my foot and killed one by accident.”

Gazdek then after he realised he had killed the chicken- threw the animal over the fence amid a plethora of feathers, before apologising to the chicken’s owner with the gift of a new one.

He said “Immediately she removed the hen from the scene of the accident but she said nothing – However, I was very sorry, so I sent her a letter and a new hen to apologise.”

The referee clearly thought it was foul play and gave the player a straight red.
