Dog Interrupts Football Match To Demand Pets From The Players!
Dog interrupts football match! (Video)
Usually, hand contact is against the rules for most players during an active football match — but one gracious pup recently thought of a way to put those perfectly good petting implements to some very fine use. And his adorable plan paid off. During the final five minutes of the match between Unión De Santa Fe and Gimnasia in Argentina, a friendly pooch named Roberto decided to call a timeout and stop the action for a very important reason: he needed some pats. Right in the middle of play, the dog strolled onto the field without shame and started rolling around on the grass. It wasn’t long before the good dog was surrounded by the players.
The players were more than happy to accommodate the dog’s wishes and show him lots of love while petting his noggin. The crowd also seemed to enjoy this unplanned intermission! Roberto’s home team, Unión De Santa Fe, was leading 1-0 at the time of the interruption and went on to win the match. This led the opposing team’s manager to jokingly speculate if this was all a ploy to help Unión De Santa Fe clinch the victory. But Roberto could never be put up to such a thing, he’s way too wholesome and loving for that.
He needed some pats!
While the theory hasn’t been confirmed, one thing is certain — Roberto has it made. It wasn’t long before Roberto was escorted back off the field — but judging from the dog’s content expression, the interruption had been more than worth it. “He is a good dog and people love him,” said a spokesperson for Unión De Santa Fe. “He’s our team’s dog. The members of the club attend to him as if it were their own.” Watch the video, Roberto seemed pleased with his audacity and almost smiled as he came out of the field!
