Moroccan Soccer Player Delivers Studs To Opponent’s Head (Video)
Last week we told you about the controversial red card that was handed to Manchester United’s Nani following a dangerous studs-up tackle during his club’s 2-1 loss to Real Madrid in UEFA Champions League play. That decision by the official essentially cost Man United the match and a shot at winning their fourth UCL title, resulting in a worldwide debate regarding whether or not the Portuguese midfielder should have been dismissed for the infraction.
While I’m not so sure which side of that debate I stand on, there is one thing that I am certain of: Manchester United fans all over the world are probably wishing their UCL match against Real Madrid was officiated by the same dude who was working a Moroccan league game between CODM Meknès and Chabab Rif Hoceima over the weekend.
You see, during that game, CRA’s Nabil Amghar delivered a vicious stud-up challenge to the head of CODM’s Adil Serraj. The result was a stretcher ride off the pitch and a head full of blood for Serraj. As for Amghar, he only received a yellow card for his actions.
Seems like a pretty sweet deal, if you ask me. Especially after you consider the fact that Nani was dismissed for what seemed to be a far less dangerous tackle.
