Fiorentina’s Ruben Oliveira gets away with filthy stamp

Posted by - December 9, 2012 - Italy

The ridiculous thing about this incident is that Ruben Oliveira was booked for it, which means that the referee must have felt that he had a good view of the incident.

Francesco Totti rightly grabbed the headlines for a virtuoso performance in Roma’s 4-2 victory over Fiorentina, but there was an unsavoury incident when Miralem Pjanic essentially had his balls stamped on by Fiorentina’s Uruguayan Ruben Oliveira.

The stamp was right in front of the benches and typically caused the Roma subs and coaches to gesticulate wildly. Because he was given a booking for the foul, he cannot be charged by the Italian Football Association.
