NORMALLY everyone loves an animal pitch invader – from the Ewood Chicken to the Anfield Cat, they often become cult creatures.
But the marten which invaded the match between FC Thun and FC Zurich at the weekend was less than welcome.
Because the weasel’s antics on the pitch ended with the creature being caught by Zurich defender Loris Benito – who the animal then injured with a bite to the finger.
Following the match, he said: “In hindsight, I was probably a little foolish.
“You don’t know what sort of disease it might be carrying. It was painful.”
