Watch This Incredible Act of Fair Play From Werder Bremen’s Aaron Hunt (Video)
During soccer matches, we often witness players taking dives before begging the officials to penalize the other team. What we rarely see is a player take a dive before begging the official not to penalize the other team, but that’s exactly what unfolded during Saturday’s Bundesliga match between Nurnberg and Werder Bremen, as Bremen’s Aaron Hart earned a penalty shot after going down in the box, but confessed shortly after that he had gone down on his own accord.
That confession may have lost him the opportunity at converting on a penalty kick, but it did earn Hart the respect of the officials and the Nurnberg players.
