"Shameful" - Union Berlin appalled by their own fans

In the middle of the stressful weeks, the processing of the scandalous events in Malmö by the leaders of the Bundesliga also bursts. Uefa is likely to intervene, but those responsible at 1. FC Union Berlin also want to find those who were responsible for the interruption of the game with the Swedish record champions.

“Of course it's also a bit of a clouded victory. It's unacceptable, nothing and nobody has anything to do on the pitch and in other blocks," said club president Dirk Zingler: "That really annoys me. We don't know that, we don't do it - and here we suddenly do it. I'm pissed off about that." The scenes will be evaluated, Zingler announced, but then put the events into perspective: "In the end, there are always few. That may sound like a cliché, but it's the truth.”

Pyros and firecrackers caused a 25-minute break after the restart, and a firecracker exploded loudly and violently in front of the Union fans' block. Who exactly threw what on the Swedish lawn remained unclear on Thursday before the team made their way back to Berlin after the game was restarted after their first win in the Europa League thanks to a goal by Sheraldo Becker (68th minute). .

The team will recover a little from the trip and the game with a regeneration session on Friday. But there can be no sign of recovery behind the scenes. "The fact that a minority just manages to not talk about the game over and over again," said Urs Fischer in the style popular with club officials after such incidents. The coach added: "I'm at a loss for words. I find that shameful.” The Berliners will be playing their next game away from home again on Sunday in the Bundesliga at VfB Stuttgart.

Only around 1200 fans had tickets for the game in Malmo. Many came all in white, some stood masked in the block. Whether and to what extent fans of city rivals Hertha BSC were also in Sweden could only be speculated about for the time being. The friendship of the FF supporters with those of Hertha is at least known.

When it started again, Becker scored the redeeming goal - Union's first in the Europa League after two previous 0-1 defeats. And still outnumbered after a red card against Andras Schäfer (45th). "It was a roller coaster ride of emotions. Chances, a red card, the interruption, then the lead and the win," said Union captain Christopher Trimmel, who celebrated the win with his teammates after the game in front of a pyro-ignited block.
