There are previous episodes in Danish football, where players have been exposed to smædesange as Viktor Fischer in Sunday's match in Odense.
But it is the first time in Danish football history, clubs have been fined as a result of their fans’ songs.
As it was the case on Friday with both OB's as Brøndbys fans.
And it is there an obvious explanation, says Jens Hjortskov, chairman of the DBU's Disciplinærinstans, which Ekstra Bladet has been in contact with.
- We simply have not previously been made aware that there would be problems, or that there have been persons who have felt violated. It happens only now, he says.
- the Rules are not new. They have been there for several years, he says.
the Extra Leaf to submit him the information on that as well Viktor Fischer as Esbjerg goalkeeper, Jeppe Højbjerg, has this week stated that it is not the first time they have heard that fans have shouted things at them.
But it can Jens Hjortskov and DBU as such does not use to so much.
- Our task is to determine the measures taken following reports, or of its own motion. We do not have a udkørende task force at each of the stadiums every weekend with a notepad and tape, so we can monitor everything.
- On the way we, as a court, and we treat the cases that are brought by those who can bring them, he says.
the OB and Brøndby IF have each been ordered to pay dkk 25,000 as a penalty for their respective fans, respectively, Sunday and Monday for the matches in the premier League against FC Copenhagen and FC Nordsjælland singing homophobic songs about Viktor Fischer.
the Punishment could have been harder, but the DBU is of the belief that it was a mitigating circumstance, that Viktor Fischer gestured down towards the OB's fans.
- from the reports we assessed, that, before the scoring and gestikulationen it was only a minority who song, and after gestikulationen it was far more.
- We can not exclude the possibility that it has had an impact on, that it escalated, because many more felt provoked. We have assessed that it is a mitigating circumstance, " says Jens Hjortskov to Ritzaus Bureau.
