Footballer sent off after headbutting dugout in goal celebration

Published Add your comment

We all like it when a pumped-up player shows his delight at scoring with an emotional celebration - it shows they care, right?

Well some players go a little bit too far.

We'd like to introduce you to this chap from Italy. He's an amateur footballer playing in Pontilcelli's game against Riolo Terme.

After scoring thanks to a frankly horrific goalkeeping error he seemed awfully pleased with himself; so pleased in fact that he run up to the dug out and launched himself through the side of it.

With his bemused team-mates and opponents watching on, the referee quickly brandishes a red card and turns the player's moment of joy into an internet viral video. How quickly things change.

Check out the video above!
