Dirty Tackle - World Soccer

Celta Vigo goalkeeper Yoel Rodriguez snapped after allowing the only goal in the 86th minute of Saturday's Spanish Segunda Division match against Villarreal B.Yoel apparently blamed Celta midfielder Roberto Trashorras for allowing Villarreal to break through for a clear shot on goal, and decided to immediately run up the pitch to confront his teammate and rough him up a bit before trudging back to his net.

After the game, Yoel held a press conference to apologize for his embarrassing freakout (he also claimed he doesn't remember what he said to Trashorras on the pitch) and the club has since issued a "strong" financial penalty against him. 

If Celta do end up in the relegation zone, they may want to clear all sharp objects out of the dressing room and start patting down Yoel for hammers before matches.
