Video: Player from Kazakhstan given life ban for crazed attack
Kazakh back attack
If the people of Kazakhstan thought Borat gave them a bad name, they are now going to have to share the blame equally between Sacha Baron Cohen and Armand Masimzhanov. This the video of the incident that has seen Masimzhanov banned from football for life will shock most viewers and possibly convince Nigel De Jong to move to Kazakhstan before the end of his career.
The incident is sparked by a De Jong-esque tackle in the clash between Kairat and Lokomotiv. It all kicks off, promping Kairat sub Masimzhanov to launch himself through the air in a kung-fu assault on opponent Radmir Muksinova, who was standing with his back turned.
The Kazakhstan Football Federation has now banned Masimzhanov for life for “terrible cruelty”.
