Two fans arrested after stealing Mallorca club van and using stadium’s pitch as a skid pan – wrecking the turf

SPANISH police arrested two vandals for driving a club van over the pitch at Mallorca's stadium in Spain.

Yobs allegedly nicked the vehicle which was parked on site and left tire tracks all over the turf at the 23,000 capacity Son Moix stadium.

The pair were reportedly part of a group of six who launched an assault on the Segunda Division side's stadium in the early hours of this morning..

Images show the surface at the stadium has been butchered by their actions.

And fans online were disgusted by the move.

Huge bald patches could be seen all over the field.

And tire tracks zig-zagged across the turf so the lines on the pitch were barely visible.

Alberto wrote: "I would put them to sow the lawn and pay for everything."

However, not everyone joined in the outrage – instead questioning the state of the pitch before the incident.

Javier pointed out a slight flaw in the anger when he said: "The grass was hardly a carpet before."

Nevi also quipped: "The act of vandalism has consisted of not watering it in weeks."

Hades added: "There are roundabouts in my town with better quality than that lawn."

The Balearic club hopes to repair the damage caused to the recently planted turf ahead of the visit of Albacete on October 21.
