Player’s honesty shows Corinthian values are still intact
Greuther Fürth Florian Trinks midfielder has made a name for himself after admitting he handled the ball in the build-up to a goal in his side’s encounter with Sandhausen.
Trinks’ honesty resulted in the referee disallowing the goal and earned him the appreciation of his opponents, not to mention the admiration of those who still believe there is a place in competitive sport for Corinthian values.
This was no hollow gesture either, with the incident occurring in the 52nd minute, when the match was still evenly poised at 1-1.
Trinks received his just reward later in the game when he netted Fürth’s third in the final 15 minutes.
