DTotD: Beijing Guoan player sent off for stomping on opponent’s chest


Stomping on someone’s chest is traditionally frowned upon in most human endeavors, yet Beijing Guoan’s Erton Fejzullahu still seemed rather surprised after getting sent off for doing just that in a match against Brisbane Roar.

After Brisbane’s Adam Sarota fell to the ground while trying to keep Fejzullahu from getting to the ball, the Beijing player attempted to take a shortcut over Sarota’s vital organs in reaching his desired destination. But the referee didn’t appreciate this route and pulled out a red card.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
