Did someone call a helpline? It’s something different. The game between Anderlecht and OH Leuven was stopped for a while today because an unusual object was on the turf. No loose iron stud or a piece of shin cloth, but a … telephone. The scene portrayed.
Referee Lardot and Tamari’s surprising looks speak volumes. During the competition match between Anderlecht and OH Leuven, the OHL attacker suddenly found a mobile phone on the field.
“How did it get there?”, our radio commentator Bert Sterckx asked. “It’s too far to have been thrown on the field by a supporter. Maybe he fell out of the greenkeeper’s pocket.”
Or was it no coincidence at all? “In the past, a coach sometimes sent his player onto the field with a sheet full of instructions. Maybe they have already digitized that,” he joked.
In any case, the incident produced some interesting images. Below is a parody thread. This could just be the conversation between the two honest finders.
Tamari: “Look what I found here, Referee?”
Lardot: “Come, give me here”
Lardot: “A telephone, say? What is it doing here?”
Tamari: “Could I maybe call my wife?”
