Konyaspor Goalkeeper Serkan Kirintili Records Fastest Red Card In Turkish Football History After Just 13 Seconds

Konyaspor Goalkeeper Serkan Kirintili Records Fastest Red Card In Turkish Football History After Just 13 Seconds

Konyaspor goalkeeper Serkan Kirintili entered the history books on Monday night when he became the fastest player to receive a red card in Turkish football history.

The 34-year-old was sent for a VERY early bath when he handled the ball outside of his 18-yard box during the club's Super Lig clash against Yeni Malatyaspor.

As his teammates looked on in shock, the experienced shot-stopper slowly walked off the pitch without even appealing the decision, hiding under his shirt before leaving the Konya Buyuksehir pitch.

Yeni Malatyaspor went on to record a deserved 2-0 win against Konyaspor after goals from Guilherme Costa Marques and Robin Yalcin sealed all three points.

But this incident grabbed all the headlines. Have you ever seen anything like it?!

Meanwhile Kirintili appeared to apologise to fans after the full-time whistle.

In another bizarre red card incident earlier this year, a non-league player switched off the floodlights and halted the game after being given his marching orders.

Playing for Kidlington Development in the Hellenic League Division One West game against Cheltenham Saracens, Julius Maruga was sent off in the 73rd minute and forced to make his way back to the dressing room for an early bath.

But in his attempt to turn the showers on after heading back to the changing room, Maruga accidentally turned off the floodlights and caused the DN Fire Stadium to be in complete darkness for five minutes.

Never change, football.
