Not Friendly! Hugo Campagnaro (Inter) sent off for a terrible tackle on Chelsea’s John Terry
John Terry was fortunate to escape unharmed from a nasty foul from Hugo Campagnaro on Thursday night.
Chelsea beat Inter Milan 2-0 in friendly in Indianapolis, and the Italians were forced to play the last half an hour with just 10 men after their 33-year-old defender saw red after an awful stomp on John Terry’s ankle.
Campagnaro, who recently joined Inter from Napoli, recklessly lunged his right boot straight down on Terry’s ankle, and the referee produced an instant red card for the Argentine defender.
That sparked a mini bust up between the players, however quickly tempers simmered down and the match continued.
For the record, John Terry managed to complete the 90 minutes.
