The footballer vigorously celebrated his victory and, after the match, gave this statement¨"they can call me an idiot, they can comment about my hairstyle, but there should not be a single word of verbal abuse in 2019 football culture".
Since that statement, the various Danish football associations have emitted a joint statement in which they show they're support for Fischer and denounced the actions of Odense fans.
