Ukrainian side Hoverla Uzhhorod's Volodymyr Lysenko was sent off in bizarre circumstances last week - for head-butting his own team-mate.

Lysenko and club colleague Mirko Raicevic seemed rather unhappy with each other during the Ukrainian league game and exchanged words then bumped chests.

Rather than engaging in a Lee Bowyer/Kieron Dyer-esque scrap Lysenko quickly put an end to the argument, head-butting his new-found rival to the floor. His manager looked, well, a little bit upset shall we say.

The saving grace? Lysenko is only on loan at Hoverla from Metalist, although probably not for much longer.
