Video: Sporting Lisbon’s Simon Vukčević sent-off for Champions League goal celebration
When will footballers ever control their need to get naked after scoring?
Sporting Lisbon were 0-1 down to Fiorentina in the home leg of their Champions League qualifier with nearly an hour on the clock when Simon Vukčević clipped his shot inside the far post. He celebrated through that age-old signifier of an important goal: running around topless.
Unfortunately for Vukčević, he had already been booked earlier in the match and was up against a referee eager to show Sepp Blatter that he knows every single letter of the law. The Montenegrin saw red and Sporting went on to draw 2-2 making Fiorentina favourites to progress.
