DTotD: Davide Santon takes down a steward from behind

Newcastle defender Davide Santon showed that he is already tackling stewards at a midseason level during his side's preseason friendly against Fenerbahce over the weekend. The wet pitch in Austria turned his attempt at a challenge on the ball near the touchline turned into a slide right into the back of a steward with a boot up the rear.

The steward landed on top of Santon, but he was very quick to get back up and didn't so much as look back at the player. Clearly this man does not mess around when on the job.

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