DTotD: Milan Jovanovic sent off for retaliatory shoulder barge

Dirty Tackle

Liverpool one-season wonder Milan Jovanovic was shown a red card in Anderlecht's 2-2 draw against Standard Liege for a laughable bit of revenge. After being knocked off the ball and into an advertising board by Daniel Opare, Jovanovic administered a shoulder barge of his own on the unsuspecting Opare.

Jovanovic was shown a straight red and somehow tried to argue it before walking off.

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