Leeds fan has police called on him after celebrating goal against Wolves

Police were called to the man's house in Oslo "after a report of loud screams from an apartment"

We've all lost our minds at a last-minute goal, but have you ever celebrated so wildly that you've had the police called on you? I can't imagine so.


But one Leeds United fan in Norway has, after celebrating his side's last-minute equaliser against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday night.

The visitors thought they were leaving Elland Road with all three points courtesy of Hwang Hee-chan's first-half goal, but there was late drama in the dying seconds of the game as substitute Joe Gelhardt won a penalty in the 94th minute, which Rodrigo converted to give both sides a share of the spoils.

Whilst the roof went off in Yorkshire, there was also pandemonium in Oslo, prompting some concerned neighbours to alert the police.

However after investigating, it turned out it was just a passionate supporter showing his love and joy for the club after the late drama.


In a post on their official Twitter account, the Norwegian police tweeted: "We have had a patrol on Ensjø after a report of loud screams from an apartment.

"The patrol came in contact with a cheerful and eager football supporter.


"He acknowledged a somewhat loud noise in connection with the penalty kick. We ended the visit and moved on."

The man in question wasn't afraid to identify himself either, confirming that his loud cheers were in fact his. Nik Whitley said in response to another supporter who clarified the situation: "Yep that was me."


Leeds' official social accounts also found the lighter side of the situation, as they responded to the Norwegian police's tweet with: "No officer, that’s just one of our fans celebrating!"
