German goalkeeper arrested after conceding 43 goals in game


A goalkeeper has been arrested in Germany after conceding 43 goals in a game.

Marco Kwiotek was between goal for his club PSV Oberhausen when they lost 43-0 to  local rivals SV Vonderort in German lower league.

The 25-year-old was arrested during the game by the police five days after the game.

Police have however not given any reasons for the arrest of the German goalkeeper but he reportedly told his teammates, “they just want to clear some things up,” when he was being led away.

Before his arrest, Kwiotek had reacted to PSV Oberhausen’s heavy defeat, telling pressmen that the result was hard to take.

“The result of the last match was hard to take. I don’t want to see that happen again,” the goalkeeper said while arriving for training ahead of their next game against Batenbrocker Ruhrpott Kicker III.

The club says they have been receiving several messages of support for the arrested goalkeeper on their Facebook page.

“I don’t know what is going on with the police,” Vonderort’s trainer Yvonne Liesenfeld is quoted to say by the UK Sun.

“First he lets in 43 goals and then he gets taken away by the law.”

The club managing director, Christian Schröer is also hopeful that the goalkeeper will be released before their next game.
