Thai footballer sacked by Bangkok FC after shocking attack

Thai footballer, Aitsaret Noichaiboon, has been immediately sacked by his club after a shocking attack on an opponent.

Noichaiboon, who plays for Bangkok FC in Thailand’s third-tier, launched a Muay Thai-style elbow on Bangkok University FC’s Supasan Ruangsuphanimit.

He obviously received a red card and it left Ruangsuphanimit needing 24 stitches for his facial wound.

In the last minute of the match in which Bangkok FC were 3-0 down, Noichaiboon was clipped by Ruangsuphanimit after a tackle. Noichaiboon stumbled before seeing red and running towards his opponent.

As he reached Ruangsuphanimit, he produced an awful elbow to the face that knocked the victim down.

The ref gave Noichaiboon a red card as players attempted to calm him down.
