Mikael Lustig Apologises for Screaming at Italian Fans Who Booed the Sweden Anthem

Mikael Lustig has apologised after he “screamed right out of frustration” at the Italian supporters who booed the Swedish national anthem on Monday night.

The Celtic defender was part of the Sweden side which secured their place in next sRummer’s World Cup, having knocked the four-time champions out with a surprise 1-0 win on aggregate.

And while the majority of the post-match reaction centred on Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, Lustig has admitted in the aftermath of the game to “feeling very bad” over his outburst.

It was reported that the 30-year-old shouted that the Italian fans were “f*cking c*nts”, language which he has now described as “not okay” on Instagram:


Translated to English, Lustig’s statement reads:

Should a player, especially one as experienced as Lustig, react as he did on Monday night?

The former Rosenborg defender will be back in actions for Celtic this weekend, as Brendan Rodgers’ team take on Ross County.
