“I was so nervous I lost my head and do not even remember what I did. I’m wrong, but they refereed with malice. It’s sad for the sport. When I saw that these two referees would be scheduled, I knew I would be harmed.” – Falcao.
Futsal superstar Falcao threw a hissy fit on Tuesday after his Santos side lost a crucial match withÂ Carlos Barbosa in the race for the Brazilian title.
Going down in a 4-3 thriller,Â Falcao was caught on camera kicking a ref up the backside after the fulltime whistle. Moreover, the official later also accused the Samba star of spitting at him.
A hefty punishment is now expected to be dished out on Falcao, which has the real possibility ofÂ torpedoingÂ his club’s chances at Â the championship.
