WTF! Arsenal old boy Denilson (Sao Paulo) very harshly sent off for nothing tackle v Bahia

We all want dangerous two-footed, studs-showing tackles stamped out of the game, but then there’s going to the other extreme.

Arsenal old boy Denilson was sent off for Sao Paulo in the Brasileirao at the weekend, for a truly nothing tackle, that could easily have been ignored as not even a foul in another game.

We’ve been told by a Brazilian follower that this ref is notoriously harsh and has a rep as being the worst in the league; and he should really brush up on the rules because this is never even a yellow card, let alone a red!
