DTotD: Romanian derby abandoned after keeper attacks goal post then opponent

Dirty Tackle

According to 101 Great Goals, the derby match between CFR Cluj and Universitatea was abandoned when things got out of hand after a dubious penalty was awarded to Cluj in the 27th minute. Cadu converted the penalty and went to celebrate behind the goal as Universitatea keeper Mircea Bornescu took his frustration out on the post.

Bornescu then thought he saw Cadu make a hostile gesture towards Universitatea fans, so he hopped the advertising board and went after Cadu next. From there, things only got worse and the match was abandoned, leading to an incident in the tunnel where Universitatea's masseuse attacked Cadu too. So, clearly, Cadu wasn't very popular.

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