Danish goalie Kim Christensen faces fine after moving goalposts
A Danish goalkeeper gave a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘moving the goalposts’ after he literally moved the flimsy posts during a Swedish first division match in order to make it harder for the opponents to score.
IFK Goteborg’s Kim Christensen was caught on camera pushing the posts toward each other before Thursday night’s clash against Orebro.
A referee noticed the posts were not in the right place around 20 minutes into the game, but did not realize it was Christensen who had done it.
The 30-year-old later admitted he had done the same thing before several other games.
“I got the tip from a friend a few years ago, and since then I have done it from time to time,” he told the Aftonbladet newspaper.
Christensen has been reported to the Swedish Football Association and faces a heavy fine and suspension.
