Hakan Arslan Sent Off For Showing Referee An Incorrect Decision On His Phone

Sivasspor captain Hakan Arslan has been sent off for showing the referee an incorrect decision on his mobile phone.

The midfielder started his side's Super Lig clash with Besiktas and found himself frustrated near half-time.

Sivasspor were 1-0 down and didn't think they were receiving the rub of the green with calls, so the 32-year-old went off the pitch and grabbed his phone.

He put it in the referee's face to try and dispute a decision, only to receive a yellow card for his actions.


The decision he was protesting involved Guven Yalcin's opener, with Sivasspor thinking the ball went out of play in the build up.

Arslan was incredibly frustrated and threw his phone to the ground, which earned him a second yellow card.

In a rage, Arslan marched down the tunnel protesting his innocence.

Fans have reacted to the scenes inside the Vodafone Arena and they thought Arslan's quick thinking was genius.






The sending off hurt 'The Braves' chances in the game and they'd go on to lose 3-0.
