There have been two red cards produced in the Brighton vs Tottenham game as Roberto De Zerbi and Cristian Stellini head for the tunnel.
Before a whistle was even blown the two managers were at each other’s throats as they exchanged some heated words.
Then in the 60th-minute tensions boiled over again as the two dugouts emptied and collided with each other in between both technical areas.
Although the Spurs manager was not involved whatsoever, he was still shown a red card for ‘failing to control his backroom staff’.
Both Cristian Stellini AND Roberto De Zerbi were sent off with red cards after an altercation on the touchline during the Spurs vs. Brighton match 😳
