Unfortunate Side Effect of Sanitisation

A player of the club I support today transferred to another club. The price was € 1,000,000 — 7,500,000 DKR.

Sporten.dk ran a story on this minimum fee release clause. The URI was as follows: http://www.sporten.dk/fodbold/sas-ligaen-20082009/retov-kan-kobes-fri-75-millioner

This is clearly an unfortunate side effect of automated sanitisation. While full stops shouldn’t be in URL’s, leaving it out in this case clearly is not ideal, and could give fans of the club false hopes. (75,000,000 DKR. is a lot of money for a player in the Danish league — to comparison, the most expensive player ever sold from Denmark, Daniel Agger, was sold for a reported 67,500,000 DKR.)
