Soccer |  The 20 Dumbest Red Cards Ever - Part 1 - FFL

After the recital of FC Metz in terms of red cards, we imagine the most beautiful expulsions in the history of football. Thanks to your participation, here are the geniuses who left the pitch before their peers.


Marouane Chamakh / PSG – Bordeaux

French Cup: 2004-2005.

The rule that prohibited a footballer from taking off his shirt dates back to 2004. So, of course, you only have to wait a few months for a first player to be called to order. And how. Facing PSG in the Coupe de France, Girondins de Bordeaux opened the scoring at the Parc des Princes through Marouane Chamakh. The Moroccan exults with joy and calmly takes off his jersey. Not remembering that he had received a first yellow card a few minutes earlier for a cut in the rules by Sylvain Armand.

Darcheville rushes to tell him to quickly put his shirt back on, but the referee has seen it all. Marouane is sent off, and can watch from the showers as his family is eliminated in overtime. The numerical inferiority of the Girondins played an important role. An act of great class, which earned Thierry Roland one of his best formulas.

“That really is bullshit in its purest form” T. Rolland

Mario Djurovski / Muangthong United – TOT SC

Thailand Championship: 2012-2013.

It is not only in France where human beings play football. In fact, Thailand is also giving the sport a try. So, when a player manages to make a pinpoint balloon on the goalkeeper, the stadium is literally melting. Let’s say that these kinds of gestures don’t see the light every weekend in Tony Jaa’s country.

The artist of this masterpiece is none other than Mario Djurovski, attacking midfielder of the famous club Muangthong United. Only, when Mario scores a goal, he lets out a very special joy. His celebration consists of taking off his shorts, placing them on his head, and simulating a machine gun shot with his hands. Except that the referee of the match knows very little about that half-childish, half-warrior joy. He then drew a second yellow card, which forced Mario Djurovski to walk away with his tail between his legs. Literally.

Edinson Cavani / PSG – RC Lens

League 1: 2014-2015.

Matchday 10 of the championship sees PSG take on RC Lens at the Stade de France. As Maxwell sends a perfect cross to Cavani, the Uruguayan is shoved from behind by Jean-Philippe Gbamin. Second yellow card for the Ivorian, red card.

Cavani converts the penalty and, as usual, does the mime of the machine gun with his knee on the ground. Bad luck for him, he is in front of the Lensois parking lot, so the match referee interprets this celebration as a provocation. Yellow card that does not please Cavani at all. The latter holds the referee by the arm for an explanation, it was enough for the man with the whistle to get a second crack in the space of 10 seconds. He killsoutside.

Arkadiusz Milik / Juventus Turin – Salernitana

Series A: 2022-2023.

The dumpling is still very fresh. Perhaps too much for some fans. bianconeri. But this fact of the game could not escape us. How to forget a winning goal scored in minute 90+4 by former Marseille player Arkadiusz Milik? A shirt-off celebration in front of his raving fans, prompting a second yellow card and sending off? Then a goal finally disallowed by VAR a few seconds later? This trilogy surpassed us.

Mario Balotelli / Rubin Kazan – Inter Milan

Champions League: 2009-2010.

If you don’t know Balotelli’s character, this anecdote will undoubtedly tell you about him. Inter Milan travel to Russia to face Rubin Kazan in the group stage. Mourinho only has Balotelli left as a striker in his ranks, the others being injured. Super Mario receives a yellow card shortly before the break. Therefore, during the break, Mourinho begged him not to take a second in the second half. No attacker could replace him. Balotelli did not drag, and was sent off at 46′. Misunderstood genius.

And who better than Mou himself to tell this story.

Robin Van Persie / FC Barcelona-Arsenal

Champions League: 2010-2011.

The knockout stages of the 2011 Champions League oppose the gunners a blaugrana. If the English win the first leg with a score of 2-1, the return to the Camp Nou is complicated. Arsenal resists the Catalan assaults, and keeps the great Barça in check (1-1). But this almost feat exploded in flight in the 55th minute.

Thrown deep, Robin Van Persie does not hear the referee’s whistle to signal offside position. The Dutchman continues his run and fires a shot. So far, nothing out of the ordinary. Except the match referee. In fact, the latter believes that Van Persie wanted to save time, which is why he inflicts a second cookie on him.

“It’s a joke what the referee did. How can I hear a whistle when 95,000 people are making noise? He was wrong all night, I don’t understand why he was there tonight” R. Van Persie

Cesc Fabregas / West Brom-Chelsea

Premier League: 2014-2015.

The Chelsea Blues are already crowned champions of England. Under José Mourinho, the Londoners have displayed a tight defense throughout the season. So when it comes to going against West Brom, the occasion is too good to mess up the usual game plan.

The Blues concede the opening goal in the 9th minute. But no reaction comes. Apart from that of Cesc Fábregas half an hour into the game. bags commit a foul on the right side. While the free kick takes time to execute, Fabregas finds a way to pass the time. The Spaniard, in a playful mood, tackles a small ball floating in the penalty area. With no luck for him, he punches Chris Brunt in the face. The referee does not hesitate for a second, and shows the red card.

Matt McClure/Tranmere Rovers–Wycombe Wanderers

League Two: 2014-2015.

This is the story of Matt McClure, a Northern Irish center forward from Wycombe, who comes on as a substitute in an English Fourth Division match. Nothing crazy so far. On his first ball, McClure elbows his opponent in the head. Matt manages to get ejected just 3.7 seconds after entering. Iconic.

Gabriel Martinelli/Wolverhampton-Arsenal

Premier League: 2021-2022.

Playing at Molineux Stadium is not the best gift for an away player. The public boo you for 90 minutes, and applauds every ball recovery of the Wolves. And Gabriel Martinelli will learn it the hard way.

The Brazilian is first of all stolen the ball by Chiquinho, and even loses the key commitment in favor of Wolverhampton. A determination that does not go through Martinelli. The Arsenal striker first pushes Podence who makes the touch. The referee leaves the advantage for Wolves, but the takedown company is not enough for Martinelli. The Brazilian goes in pursuit of his executioner Chiquinho, going on the counterattack, and takes the opportunity to push him hard. Second serious foul in just 7 seconds. Two yellow cards for the same action, which makes it red. Parabens, Gabriel.
