In Sports News this Monday: supporters continue to boycott the home games of Bohemians 1905 due to a new ground-share deal – player Lukáš Hartig says he hopes they come around; Milan Baroš signs a lucrative new deal with Galatasaray; Tomáš Berdych is now seventh in the world, his highest ranking to date; and ice hockey goalie Milan Hnilička retires at 37.
Bohemians fans continue to stay away from home games
“We definitely miss the fans. I think if 12,000 people had come they would have enjoyed themselves. It was end to end stuff; there were inaccuracies, but both sides also had a lot of chances, and I think people would have enjoyed the game. We will have to hope that the fans change their minds and support us. We need them here, and I hope they realise that.”
