Is this the worst sending off ever?
Porto were defeated 1-0 at Moreirense in the Taca da Liga (Portuguese League Cup) on Tuesday evening.
The result eliminates Porto from the competition and was a pretty embarrassing loss for one of the three biggest sides in Portugal.
Porto had two players sent off in the latter stages of the match: Danilo and Yacine Brahimi.
The Danilo red card was nothing short of a scandal from referee Luis Godinho.
Danilo was fouled!
On 79 minutes, three minutes after he had already been booked, Danilo was sent off.
His crime: to be fouled by Luis Godinho.
The referee was walking backwards, appeared to have no idea where he was and simply backtracked into Danilo.
Danilo posts footage on Instagram
A second yellow card was forthcoming, much to the amazement of Danilo and his Porto team mates.
After the game, Godinho’s Instagram account was deluged with comments from Porto fans questioning the decision and labelling him the worst referee in the world.
Following the match, Danilo took to Instagram and posted video of the incident. He wrote: “I have seen and reviewed the footage more than a hundred times and honestly I can not understand the criterion of this gentleman to make such a decision. I’ve watched many episodes in football but this was undoubtedly the most shameful!”
