Little known fact: If you’re a footballer and decide to strip down and insert your penis inside a trophy, not everyone is going to be pleased with you.
Defender Aleksander Melgalvis Andreassen learned this — for lack of a better term — the hard way.
On Sunday, Lillestrøm SK celebrated a 3-2 win against Sarpsborg 08, which meant the team won the Norwegian FA Cup for the first time in a decade.
During Monday evening’s trophy parade, Melgalvis took the partying to a whole new level by stripping onstage and inserting his penis into a trophy, as one does.
A hastily written statement was released shortly after the ceremony, in which the 28-year-old athlete expressed some sort of emotion that’s nowhere near regret.
“I’ve come a long way to play in a cup final,” he tell the Dagbladet. “Of course I can understand that [people thought] it was a bit over the top. I’ll admit that and apologize, but it is not something I regret.”
For the record, we aren’t angry or upset about any of this.
“Winning the cup is a big thing and obviously it should be celebrated,” huffed Norwegian FA communications director Yngve Haavik.
“But it is very possible to do so in a manner that shows the cup a bit more rrespect
“I am sure it wasn’t intentional from Melgalvis but it came out the wrong way regardless. I think Melgalvis and Lillestrøm agree with that.”
