Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk’s Derek Boateng lost his head whilst being sent-off over the weekend.
When realising he was about to get a second yellow card for a poor tackle on a Vorskla player; the 26 year-old proceeded to punch an opponents in the face and knocking him to the floor! A ”meleé” ensued whilst the Ghanan was escorted off the pitch and he is reported to have clattered another Vorskla player on his way for an early bath.
Dnipro is the club who have reportedly offered Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni a €5 million annual salary to manage the club. One wonders how he would deal with such indiscretions from a man who is now set to receive a five match ban – and likely hefty fine – from Прем’єр-Ліга, Premyer-Liha the Ukranian Premier League; which resumed last week following a ten week winter hiatus.
