Watch Velez Sarsfield boss given RED CARD for cynical foul after his goalkeeper made outrageous blunder leading to goal
FOOTBALL is well and truly back, and with it has already come some hilarious altercations.
Two of which have come from the same game; Velez Sarsfield versus Godoy Cruz in the Argentina Primera division.
The game got off to a stunning start as the Velez Sarsfield goalkeeper dropped a massive howler to gift the opposition team a goal early on.
After a defensive header from a deep free-kick which seemed to take all the danger out of the set-piece, the goalkeeper ended up mis-controlling the ball.
The consequent spinning of the ball this caused gave Pier Barios all the invitation he needed to prod the ball away from the goalkeeper and put the ball into an empty net.
Later in the game, the manager of Velez was sent off for a crazy foul on a Godoy player.
As two players battled for the ball the manager of Velez, Alexander Medina, decided to stick his leg out when on the edge of his technical area.
This action proceeded to trip up the player, giving the referee no choice but to send the manager up to the stands.
The crazy match ended in a 1-1 draw where former Atletico Madrid captain Diego Godin equalised in the 15th minute.
Following the result, Velez have now drawn four games on the bounce and sit down in 23rd in the league.
