Red card: referee breaks player’s nose with horrific elbow

Without referees football would be in a bit of a mess. They keep things under control, most of the time, inflict some much needed authority and just generally keep the game clean and tidy. One referee in Holland has bucked the trend though, although accidentally.

During a game between Barendrecht and Scheveningen, the referee ended up throwing an accidental elbow into the face of one of the players after over-accentuating his hand movements. The player was stretchered off and taken to hospital, where he reportedly suffered a break in the nostril region. Red card.
