Eli Tabib, owner of the notoriously controversial Bietar Jerusalem soccer team, has announced that he plans to leave the team due to the behavior of the team’s fans during a match in Charleroi on Thursday. The Israel crowd pelted the pitch with smoke grenades,
and went so far as to hit the rival team’s goalie with an object thrown from the stands.
“I am ashamed and shocked by the behavior of part of the crowd tonight. The whole world watched the horror this embarrassing horror show, conducted by the same radical group, whom are not true Bietar Fans in my eyes,” Tabib said. “Tonight officially marked the end of my role in Israeli soccer, and specifically with Bietar Jerusalem,” he said.
