Marcelo Demoted From Soccer Club For Continuously Farting

Brazilian soccer star Marcelo farted his way out of the big leagues.

After being demoted from Lyon’s top squad last August, Marcelo’s contract was terminated in January for “inappropriate behavior.” His release prompted plenty of questions that, for a while, went unsettled.

Those inquiries were answered Tuesday when sources told ESPN that Marcelo’s stinky career path was a result of continuous farting and laughing. Apparently, Marcelo was cutting it up and cutting the cheese in front of Lyon manager Peter Bosz and sporting director Juninho, neither of whom appreciated the sounds and smells.

Upon laughing out of (presumably) both ends, the 34-year-old Marcelo was expelled from Lyon’s top club shortly after a 3-0 loss at the hands of Angers.

Marcelo, who once played for Lyon Il, appeared in 11 games, scoring 3 goals. His contract was terminated earlier this year and within two days of the termination, he signed with Bordeaux – seemingly the perfect fit. The club stinks – they are currently in the bottom of the Lique 1 table and just seven points from safety.

At the time, Bordeaux likely sought out Marcelo to light a fire under the underperforming club. Not a bad idea, so long as no one’s putting a flame underneath Marcelo.
