Goalie plays despite police charges

Charges for domestic violence have not affected OB’s goalkeeper from continuing to play for the club

Odense Boldklub’s Polish goalkeeper Arek Onyszko is still the top man in front of the net for the team, despite the fact that he will be tried on charges of domestic violence.

Onyszko played on Monday evening, when OB defeated Randers FC 3-1. He was given a huge round of applause by the Odense crowd when he headed out onto the pitch at the start of the match.

Earlier this week, Onyszko was officially charged with assaulting his ex-wife, Anna. According to reports he dragged her by the hair and punched her.
The media have been silent on the issue of whether the goalkeeper should continue to play or be suspended until his court case is decided.
