Gaston Sessa sent off for sickening stamp

Published Add your comment

Steven Gerrard’s ill-timed stamp on Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera caused quite a stir throughout the footballing world and it appears that you just can’t keep stamping out of the news for the minute.

Despite Gerrard’s ill-discipline, 41-year-old veteran goalkeeper Gaston Sessa surely takes the medal for the most horrific of all stamps.

In a fiercely contested game in which home side Boca Unidos were reduced to nine men, Sessa committed one of the worst two-footed stamps you’ll see this season.

With the score level at 1-1 in the Argentinian second tier clash, All Boys were pushing for a winner when forward Marcos Pirchio went down inside Sessa’s penalty area slightly dramatically, much to the goalkeeper’s displeasure.

Remarkably, this isn’t the first time the Argentine shot-stopper has made the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

The South American press have labeled him the ‘butcher’ for his aggressive on field antics. In 2007, Sessa was suspended by his former club Velez Sarsfield for kicking Boca Juniors’ striker Rodrigo Palacio in the face.

Despite having to play the best part of 20 minutes with just nine players, Boca Unidos managed to hold on for the point as the game ended 1-1.
