Video: Real Betis’ Juan Carlos breaks corner flag as he fails to take corner
Juan Carlos was envisaging a nice out-swinger for one of his team-mates to attack as he prepared to take a corner kick against Real Sociedad at the weekend. Instead he destroyed the corner flag and left the ball sitting exactly where he left it.
There’s not really an outcome to this situation that isn’t embarrassing for a footballer, but the Real Betis man keeps his head held high and points out to the referee than he didn’t manage to make any contact with the ball and is entitled to another go.
Perhaps he should have left corner duties to the mascot lurking behind him.
