SV Vonderort football club’s second team in German C League broke a record on September 12, 2016 by conceding 43 goals in one football match and the goalkeeper was later arrested by the police.
Sometimes, a performance on the field is so bad that it’s criminal. That may quite literally be the case for a 25-year-old goalkeeper in the lower leagues of Germany.
In a recent league game, SV Vonderort broke an undesirable record when it lost 43-0 to rival PSV Oberhausen.
According to German newspaper, Express
, SV Vonderort was down 35-0 at halftime, and at one point, it was only able to field eight players. PSV Oberhausen was so embarrassed by its lead that it made the sporting gesture of removing three of its own players to even up the numbers.
After conceding a goal nearly every two minutes, goalkeeper Marco Kwiotek may have wanted to completely forget about the performance after becoming the world record holder in the history of football for conceding a goal per two minutes in a match.
However, five days later at a training session, two police cars arrived at Vonderort’s training ground in Bottrop (around 30 miles west of Dortmund). The 25-year-old keeper was escorted from the training field by armed officers and brought to the local police station for questioning.
The Sun reported that, “Kwiotek called out to players as he was led from pitch by cops at the club’s base in Bottrop, western Germany. They just want to clear some things up.
“He has not been seen since and police have refused to comment on why he was taken into custody.”
Club managing director, Christian Schröer told Express that he hopes the shot stopper will be available for selection in Vonderort’s next game. Hopefully, he won’t have to reach into the net quite so often in that one.
