Was the red card brandished to Horsens’ Anders Norh the most unjust dismissal of the season?
Sunday in Denmark’s Superliga saw Horsens claim a narrow 1-nil win at Silkeborg, but the visitors had to close out the match with only ten men after defender Anders Norh talked his way into collecting a second yellow card.
It all started with a Silkeborg corner just after the hour.
Home striker Christian Holst was left in charge of the dead-ball, and the forward’s intention was to play it short to teammate Christopher Poulsen. Only Poulsen wasn’t on the same wavelength, leaving Holst to illegally knock the corner to himself, before delivering a cross that won his side another corner opportunity.
Referee Anders Hermansen and his linesmen all missed Holst’s illegal corner routine, so Anders Norh took it upon himself to explain to the man in black what had just happened. But the upperty official didn’t take kindly to that, and in turn Norh incredibly talked his way into an early bath.
Anders Norh’s dismissal was a complete travesty of justice.
Staying with bonkers bookings, Spartak Moscow’ Emmanuel Emenike was incredibly sent off for a goal celebration against Zenit. We have no idea why.
