London, Nov 18 (THAINDIAN NEWS) English club Bristol Rovers has announced that they have launched investigation into the behavior of Jordan Goddard during the FA Cup match between the club and Corby Town.

Goddard reportedly went to the corner flag where about 500 opposing fans were seated and peed there. The incident disgusted the fans who registered their protest. There were about 3,800 fans at the stadium and the incident reportedly happened just before the first half whistle was blown.

He told The Sun that, “I’ve never seen anything like it. He was doing stretches, then put his hands in his shorts and pulled himself out. We shouted at him and he looked over and started laughing.”

Bristol Rovers has issued a statement saying they have launched an investigation into the incident. The club said they were notified by the fans and they will treat the incident as an internal matter.

The club’s spokeswoman told reporters that, “We are still checking whether there’s an offence to be looked at.”
