Video: As football celebrations go, pulling a goat is up there

FC Koln player Anthony Ujah ossibly the most bizarre goal celebration ever was performed at the weekend.

Nigerian forward Anthony Ujah was so excited by scoring the fourth goal in their 4-2 win over Frankfurt he decided to charge over to the club mascot, Hennes the goat.


However, Ujah was a bit too excited, and pulled on the horns of the poor goat in such force that he has since apologised to the animal.


After Koln won for the first time in seven matches, Ujah said: "Sorry to Hennes I was a bit too hard on him."


The goat, named after former player and coach Hennes Weisweiler, is a regular feature at Cologne’s home games and is said to be in a good condition, despite the celebrations.
