Werder Bremen’s international goalkeeper Tim Wiese was fined 10,000 euros on Friday after he climbed onto perimeter fencing, grabbed a megaphone and hurled abuse at Hamburg fans.

Wiese’s extraordinary outburst came after his team’s 2-0 Bundesliga win on Sunday, a victory which had come hot on the heels of Bremen’s UEFA Cup semi-final triumph over their northern rivals.

The keeper perched himself on the fencing and screamed: “S..(expletive) on Hamburg”.

Wiese apologised for his behaviour after being fined by the German football federation (DFB).

“I got carried away by the emotions of the moment,” he said.

Bremen and Hamburg have met four times in the last three weeks with Wiese’s team coming out on top in the league, German Cup and UEFA Cup.
