It’s that time of the year again, when Europe’s teams have commenced their preseason programs to prepare for the upcoming campaign. Fans, too, are using their teams’ friendlies to tune up their brawling skills, as we witnessed yesterday when Leeds United and Eintracht Frankfurt fans got to scrapping.
In the video above, you can see that most of the hooligans in action are still brushing the rust off. They dance in and out of the scrum, as of yet not quite comfortable sending shots when others are raining in at the same time. The timing of their strikes, too, show how far they are from mid-season form. Here are some pictures from the fight:
In total, 25 fans were arrested, the majority of them Frankfurt supporters, and three Leeds fans required hospitalization.
