VIDEO: Luisão KOs referee in friendly

Straight red, surely.

IT WAS JUST a run of the mill friendly between Fortuna Düsseldorf and Benfica.

Nothing too unusual, not even a goal. But a 39th minute foul awarded by referee Christian Fischer prompted three Benfica players to angrily protest.

One of them went too far.

The line-of-sight in this video is obscured, but one second the ref is standing his ground. The next; Luisão has rushed in and the object of his ire is sprawled on the ground.

Good to have football back, eh?
