Fritzle the alligator consoles a Stuttgart player after Europa League playoff loss

Stuttgart cruelly lost 4-3 on aggregate to Croatian side Rijeka in the Europa League playoffs. A goal in the fourth minute of injury time made the difference for Rijeka, leaving the Stuttgart players understandably distraught when the final whistle blew. But when an athlete is exhausted and at their lowest moment, there is always a giant alligator named Fritzle wearing a Puma cap and ill-fitting shoes right there to pick them back up.

Once Fritzle gabbed him with his that green fuzz covered mitt, Benedikt Rocker probably felt much, much better. Or very confused.

Sometimes everybody needs a Fritzle.
