Footballer booked for penalty flatulence

Fart your way into the referee’s bad books

An amateur footballer found himself in trouble with the referee after his attempts to wind up an opponent backfired. A Charlton Villa player was yellow-carded after allegedly breaking wind as an International Manchester player was about to take a penalty. The initial penalty was saved, but the ref also ordered a retake after the disturbance.

Two Villa players, including their goalkeeper, were later sent-off for disputing the initial yellow card. Villa boss Ian Treadwell produced the sort of quote tabloid editors kill for when he said: “My gut feeling is that someone made the noise with his mouth.”
