WATCH: Throwback To The Italian Player Who Got Sent Off For Head-Butting The Dugout

Posted by

Throwback to this Italian amateur match between Pontilcelli and Riolo Terme when a striker’s celebration after taking advantage of a goalkeeping howler ended up with him getting sent off.

The player was clearly ecstatic but what happened next is truly mind-blowing. The goalscorer ran over to the dugout in order to complete his celebration but instead of joining his team mates on the sideline he decided to head-butt the dugout which resulted in a perspex panel getting smashed.

Understandably the referee took action and sent off the player for his unnecessary reaction to scoring a goal and he was quick to change his attitude as soon as he saw the red.
