Video: Maccabi Tel Aviv’s Yoav Ziv sent off for kicking boot at linesman against Stoke
Crazy red card
Talk about a studs-up challenge! Maccabi Tel Aviv player Yoav Ziv reinvented the term when his gave the linesman the boot during last night’s Europa League clash at Stoke.
But his foot wasn’t even attached to the boot at the time.
Ziv’s left boot came off when he was trampled over by Ryan Shotton. The frustrated player kicked out at his wayward footwear, only for it to fly straight towards the assistant ref.
The victim was in no doubt that it was a deliberate act, and Ziv was red carded!
