Emir Spahic could find himself in a considerable amount of trouble after clashing with stewards following Bayer Leverkusen’s match with Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.
Leverkusen drew 0-0 with Pep Guardiola’s side but fell to a 5-3 defeat on penalties in the DFB-Pokal quarter-finals.
In the aftermath, the Bosnian defender got into a physical altercation with stewards, which apparently stemmed from trying to get his friends to the changing rooms from their private box.
With the stewards disallowing Spahic's demands, things got ugly. The confrontation reached a dramatic climax when the Leverkusen player appeared to headbutt a steward knocking him to the ground.
The officials seemingly had control of the issue, before Spahic’s selfish act - a complete disregard for the authorities. Fellow stewards and fans rushed to quickly drag the disgraced defender away before any threat of further violence ensued.
The game itself was a fairly drab affair, with more attention paid to the off the field antics of the Bayer Leverkusen man at the end of the game.
Spahic was already sidelined as a result of an ankle injury picked up during the match, but his woes could be compounded by the fact the police are now investigating the incident further.
