Celta Vigo player sent off for throwing grass at Sergio Busquets
April 6, 2015
With Barcelona up 1–0 late in their match against Celta Vigo, Sergio Busquets took his sweet time preparing to take a free kick. Celta’s Fabian Orellana did not appreciate what he perceived to be Busquets wasting time, so he picked up a chunk of the earth and threw it at him.
Orellana was shown a red card for his grass chucking and Busquets was shown a yellow for time wasting. Of course, since Busquets has been know to feel excruciating pain from no contact whatsoever, getting hit by the tuft of grass killed him.
