Sebastien Pocognoli sent off for Karate Kick on Hannover debut v Wolfsburg

Belgian defender Sebastien Pocognoli endured a miserable debut for Hannover on Saturday, just five days after signing from Standard Liege.

The 25-year-old left back launched a Karate Kick, in true Nigel De Jong-style, on Wolfsburg right back Fagner and received his marching orders from referee Gunter Perl.

It was just 34 minutes into Sebastien Pocognoli’s first match for Hannover.

Hannover, 1-0 up at the time, brushed off the loss of Pocognoli, to win 2-1 against Wolfsburg as they leap frogged a bunch of teams to go 9th in the Bundesliga.

Fagner did complete the 90 minutes. Pocognoli may need a little more time to win over the home fans at the AWD-Arena.
