A red card that’s sillier than Ronaldo’s!

Poor old Adrian Bastia. The Asteras Tripolis player thought he was being a good citizen – helping out the stewards, stopping his fellow professionals getting beaten up – when he tripped a pitch invader towards the end of his side’s match against Panathinaikos.

The referee saw the incident differently and sent him off. He plays for Tripolis – what do you expect? The hair alone is a red card offence though, so he can have no complaints!

    Ridiculous. Mercilessly pounding pitch invaders should be encouraged!
