Red Star Belgrade players reprimanded for eating meat pies before training sessions
Who ate all the pies? Red Star Belgrade’s players, by the sound of it.
The squad have been ticked off by manager Slavisa Stojanovic for their fondness for meat pies and beer.
Stojanovic spoke up after his side struggled to a 2-0 Europa League win over Icelandic minnows IBV.
After drawing the second leg 0-0, he said: “All the hard work you have done in the searing heat of pre-season build-ups will amount to nothing if you keep eating meat pies before practice and drinking two or three beers after it.”
Meat pies before pre-season training? That is very, very brave.
