Wild scenes in Swiss women’s handball: in the last game of the promotion/relegation round against Herzogenbuchsee, Olten conceded the equalizer to 32:32 seconds before the end. With a win, the Oltnerinnen would have been promoted to the NLA, so they remain second-class.
Olten coach Christian Müller completely loses his nerve because of the goal: he kicks his player Merita Shabanaj in the butt with his knee. She no longer understands the world, grabs her butt and looks puzzled in the direction of her coach.
Shabanaj is not an accidental victim: she runs too slowly to switch back with the goalkeeper just before the kick, allowing the goal to go into an empty goal. A mistake that in no way justifies the physical activity of their trainer. Olten wants to work up the incident internally and communicate possible consequences on Tuesday, according to a Blick request.
The scandal is also explosive for the Swiss Handball Association (SHV). Müller occupies a key position there as head of training. “The case is already with the competent disciplinary commission for competitive sports (DKL) and is being investigated accordingly,” says SHV Managing Director Jürgen Krucker. “In order to protect everyone involved, we are not commenting on an ongoing procedure and are waiting for the decision and the justification of the DKL. In addition to this ongoing sporting disciplinary procedure, we, as his employer, also have the obligation to process and ultimately assess the incident. » (cmu)
