Leandro produces horror kung-fu kick tackle in Brazilian game

Published Add your comment

Another day, another horror tackle. 

Football seems to be littered with outrageous tackles and horrendous injuries recently. Last week saw Chievo's Federico Mattiello gruesomely snap his leg in an awful collision with Roma's Radja Nainggolan. 

Dangerous play

Not to be outdone, this week Leandro, of Brazilian side Murici, attempted to cause just as much pain to an opponent. His 'tackle', which toes a fine line with a GBH charge, almost snapped his opponent in two.

Kung-fu kick

Word of advice - a studs up face-high challenge will end in an early bath.

The incident occurred in Murici's Copa Alagoas semi-final clash with ASA at the weekend. Amazingly, Leandro attempted to get a sympathy vote after the assault by feigning injury to try and escape his imminent dismissal. 

Violence is never the answer

If you're going for the sympathy vote, at least do it properly. Follow the example set by Maximo Banguera on Thursday night.

Justice was eventually served to Leandro and ASA went on to win the game 2-0. Proof that violence is never the answer.
