Horror tackle! CFR Cluj midfielder Negrut sent off for awful foul on Steau goalkeeper Arlauskis

A horrendous foul was committed in the Romanian top flight clash between CFR Cluj and rivals Steau Bucharest at the weekend.

With Steau, the visitors, holding a 1-0 lead which would ultimately win them the game, Cluj players became more frantic in their efforts to restore parity.

Cue substitute Sergiu Negrut chasing down a through ball in a race against the Steau goalkeeper Giedrius Arlauskis, except the young midfielder is not only beaten to the ball but also manages to kick his opponent mid-jump.

Despite appearing to also hurt himself, Negrut was deservedly sent off.

You can see the terrible attempt at a challenge in the video above.
