DTotD: Bursaspor goalkeeper whales on pitch invader

Brooks Peck
Dirty Tackle

No one likes pitch invaders, but Bursaspor goalkeeper Harun Tekin dislikes them more than most. After a 2-0 loss to Kasimpasa in which the second goal was scored in the fourth minute of injury time, an overzealous fan attempted to invade the pitch from behind Tekin's goal. Frustrated by the day's events, Tekin snapped and unleashed a beating on the invader as security staff tried to wrestle the man away.

Tekin was eventually led towards the players' tunnel, where he threw his shirt to the ground. After this incident, his name was officially changed to Harun Tekken.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
