Footballer sent off for flashing red card to referee

Trabzon (Turkey), Feb 22 (IANS) Turkish football club Trabzonspor’s Salih Dursin was sent off for flashing a red card to the referee in a Super Lig match against Galatasaray.

Dursin vent his frustration by showing the red card as his teammate Luis Cavanda was sent off by referee Deniz Bitnel here on Sunday which left Trabzonspor with only eight men. And with Dursin being shown the door for his offence, Trabzonspor were reduced to only seven players, reported the Daily Mirror.

Following Cavanda’s red card, Trabzonspor’s players surrounded the referee, causing him to drop his card on the floor. Dursin rushed to the card and flashed it in the face of Bitnel who then snatched it back and returned the favour.

The others who were sent off in the game were Ozer Hurmaci and Aykut Demir.

Despite the four red cards, rival team Galatasaray needed a last minute penalty conversion to secure a 2-1 win.
