'Rancid' – Fans horrified as Europa Conference League team sells SAUSAGE WATER as stadium drink

FOOTBALL fans are up in arms on social media after discovering Bodo/Glimt sell sausage water at their home games.

The Norwegian champions have been thrust into the limelight this season due to their success in the Uefa Europa Conference League.

They knocked out Celtic in that competition and beat Jose Mourinho's Roma 6-1 in the group stage – and the two sides meet again in the quarter-final.

But Bodo/Glimt have now incurred the wrath of baffled football supporters, who cannot believe sausage water is sold at their games.

Footy Scran, a Twitter account dedicated to sharing the best and worst food on offer at football matches, posted a photo of the delicacy in question.

The item, which is a broth made as a result of boiling sausages in water, reportedly costs £2.10.

It is said to be similar to Bovril, which is a staple of British football food and still sold at several grounds across the country.

In Norway the drink is called Pølsevann and a similar dish is found in Sweden, called Korvsoppa.

But many fans are disgusted by the idea with 80 per cent of people rejecting the drink in a poll conducted by Footy Scran.

One supporter wrote on Twitter: "It’s hot dog water don’t try and defend it."

Another added: "Or as it's known here, Carling."

A third said: "It's water which sausage has been boiled and cooked in, so it likely has fat and seasonings in it. But still pretty rancid if you ask me."

Some did defend the drink however with one fan writing: "We didn’t all grow up on Bovril just to slag sausage water… check yourselves."
