ZAGREB (Reuters) - A Croatian third division footballer got the shock of his life when he saw a flock of sheep waiting for him at work.
Ivica Supe, a 29-year old playing for part-timers NK Zagor, has been given 16 sheep by a local shepherd Josko Bralic as a bonus for the 16 goals he has scored this season.
“I was really shocked and I have no idea what to do with so many sheep because I plan to score more goals,” Supe told Croatian media.
The club’s spokesman said: “We are a very small club unable to entice another sponsor so we were delighted when Bralic offered sheep as support.”
