Ex-Wales boss Chris Coleman’s club are digging TRENCH online to play the game as visitors complain about a goal that was too small
CHRIS COLEMAN’s side Atromitos dug a ditch on one of the goal lines for their game against AEK Athens.
Fixed an issue where a set of goalposts was too small.
Coleman’s wife claims Charlotte The frame of the gate was an inch too short.
But one fan suggested the goal was 5-7cm shorter than mandated, prompting Atromitos to try and rectify the situation.
A trench was dug along the goal line and filled in to add a few more inches.
But the groundsmen’s efforts were in vain when the game was abandoned.
A Greek court will reportedly decide whether to postpone the game or award the points to AEK Athens.
A win would have put them top of the table with Atromitos seventh.
It is not the first time this season that the size of a goal has sparked a dispute, with a Wigan goal being two inches taller than the eight feet allowed in a game against Cardiff.
Hull’s October clash with Birmingham was also delayed for the same reason, with officials having to saw off part of the goalposts to set them to the correct height.
