Four Players Who Were Shown A Red Card For Strange Reasons

A red card is nothing new in football and a lot of players have been sent off for one reason or the other over the years. However, these four players got sent off for some really weird reasons.

1. Edin Dzeko:

During a 2016 match between Bosnia and Greece, Dzeko was shown a red card for confronting Greek player Sokratis and pulling his shorts down.

2. Jamie Carragher:

During a 2002 FA Cup encounter between Liverpool and Arsenal, Carragher was sent off after he angrily threw back a coin which had been thrown at him by the fans, into the crowd of spectators.

3. Eden Hazard:

During a 2003 match between Chelsea and Swansea City, Hazard was shown a red card for kicking a ball boy who refused to release the ball to him as a time-wasting strategy.

4. Neymar:

While playing for Santos, 19-year-old Neymar scored in a Copa Libertadores match against Colo Colo and then celebrated by putting on a mask of himself with his face upside down, which was handed to him by a fan in the crowd. He was sent off by the referee for the act.
