Algerian star kisses referee for booking him

Published Add your comment

Footballers react in all sorts of ways after being booked, pleading open hands, angry gesticulating and the sarcastic clap are all commonly used, but a player in Algeria has chosen a less aggressive route.

Nour El Islam Hamimid of Algerian Ligue 1 side CA Bordj Bou Arréridj (also known as CABBA) was shown a yellow card in his side's loss to MC El Eulma (shortened to MCEE) on Saturday.

Mohamed Bichari was the man in charge of the match and he can't have been expected the smacker he got on the forehead from Hamimid in the first half, though you can see in the video above he didn't seem flustered at all by it.
