South African Soccer Player Mistakes Opponent’s Crotch For The Ball (And Kicks It…Hard) [Video]
The way the following video starts off, with Rooi Mahamutsa pleading with the officials not to send him off, the viewer might be led to believe that there has just been some grave miscarriage of justice. Whatever Mr. Mahamutsa did, it couldn’t have merited a red card, right? Otherwise, why would he be protesting so much?
But don’t be persuaded by this guy’s innocent plea. During a match between the Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United of the South African soccer league, Rooi kicked SuperSport’s Thabiso Nkoana in the nuts. Hard.
Why? Well, it’s hard to say what Mahamutsa was thinking, exactly. Did he think Nkoana was a hologram, or a ghost? Maybe a figment of his imagination—an apparition that his foot would just glide through to make contact with the ball?
Or was he perhaps under the impression that Nkoana was a eunuch, and thus wouldn’t mind a friendly kick to the crotch?
Who knows? But one thing is for sure: this nut shot is epic.
Have a look:
Yeah, that’s a red card, right?
