SICK soccer bats threw painted dead rats at their rival supporters in gruesome scenes.

The incident happened on Friday night at a meeting between Charleroi and Standard Liège in the Belgian Pro League.

Liege won the game 3-1, but the main topic of conversation was the shocking scenes in the stands.

The atmosphere was electric as both groups of fans cheered the teams’ entry with pyrotechnic displays and tifos.

The game itself was interrupted for a few minutes because smoke bombs were thrown onto the field.

But things took a turn for the worse when Charleroi supporters started throwing red-painted dead rats at their Liege counterparts.

A press release published on Facebook by the Liège supporters’ group criticized the behavior of Charleroi fans.

The explanation read: “Supporters” from Charleroi threw dead rats towards T2. We’re not talking about one or two rats, but easily ten.

“We hope that the Pro League will act, our club will file a complaint and animal associations will get involved.

“You really are a big bitch. We already knew that, but you just confirmed it even more.”

The Charleroi Ultras were dressed as pest controllers in the stands and unfurled a banner that read “Rat Control”.


In the week leading up to the game, the Charleroi Ultras had posted messages on their social media pages comparing Liege fans to rats.

One such post translates as: “After the floods and even more so since the tram works in Liège have accelerated, the rats are out. I must have noticed the inhabitants of Liège, who have to walk the streets of the Cité Ardente during the day or in the evening.”

During the game, Charleroi supporters could be heard chanting: “There are rats in the mud, they are the rats everywhere, they are the people of Liege.”

This isn’t the first time Charleroi has gotten into trouble for his behavior off the pitch.

Back in November 2022, a game against Mechelen was interrupted by Charleroi supporters who threw smoke bombs and rockets onto the pitch.
