DTotD: Iranian teammates sent off for fighting each other

Dirty Tackle

Last week in unusual Iranian football fights, we had an unidentified player scaling a fence to attack a lone heckling fan. This week, we have unidentified teammates attacking each other.

After one player had to held back from an argument with his manager by a teammate covering his mouth, the team in blue's civil war continued when a fight broke about between two players as their side was preparing to take a free kick. The referee showed them both red cards even as they were still trying to square up to each other while being separated.

And you thought Man City had problems.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
