Referee Topples Player Of Each Club Five Seconds Apart

Referee Topples Player Of Each Club Five Seconds Apart

A referee looked as though he had been on the brandy the night before and was still feeling the effects the day after when he was officiating a game in the Turkish league.

During a contest between Turkish sides Besiktas and Kayserispor at Besiktas' stadium, Vodafone Park, the referee accidentally bundled over a Kayserispor player, who was already in the middle of a tussle between himself and two opposing players. Less than five seconds later, it seemed that the referee wanted to create an equilibrium, in the interest of fairness, and so he took out a player from the home side, someone who was not even in possession.

We're kidding, of course. The referee didn't mean to. The player and the referee were ball-watching and simply collided into each other by mistake.

Besiktas went on to win the game 2-0, to keep their hopes of earning a European place alive. The victory puts them in fourth place and four points off the top.

But this isn't the first instance of referee's reigning havoc on the game. Such as this Spanish referee.

For ages Mike Dean would have been searching for his true soulmate now we've found him in Spanish referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz. The La Liga ref made the game between Manchester City and Liverpool all about him.

Referees usually are described as having their best games when you can say that you didn't notice him during the game, so in that case Antonio Mateu Lahoz may have had his worst game ever.

In Manchester City and Liverpool's clutch Champions League quarter final second leg at the Etihad Stadium the Spaniard went full card happy, even sending Pep Guardiola to the stand at half time.

Twitter was awash with criticism for the man who managed to doll out five yellow cards in the opening 45 minutes alone, some of them for utter nonsense:
