Sao Paulo star Luis Fabiano sent off for ridiculous piece of playacting v Corinthians [Video]

Sao Paulo’s 2-0 derby win against Corinthians in the Copa Libertadores last night was littered with red cards, including former Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano.

The 34 year old Brazilian international joined two Corinthians players for an early bath when he got involved in a scuffle with substitute John Mendoza.

Sao Paulo star Luis Fabiano really embarrassed himself, pretending to have been hit in the face by his opponent.

The referee showed both players a red card – a little harsh for poor John Mendoza.

Watch the video below. The slow-mo at 0:26 highlights the terrible piece of playacting.
