DTotD: Zlatan Ibrahimovic sent off for flying kick to goalkeeper’s chest

Dirty Tackle

His penchant for kicking his own teammates is well known, but in PSG's 2-1 loss to St. Etienne Zlatan Ibrahimovic turned his boots of fury on the opposing goalkeeper. PSG trailed St. Etienne 1-0 after a Mamadou Sahko own goal in the 55th minute and in Zlatan's effort to equalize, he deliver a high boot to goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier's chest in the 70th minute. This earned Ibrahimovic a straight red, which he didn't seem to think he deserved. If anything, the keeper deserved a red card for impeding his Zlatanness.

Anyway, someone is going to pay for this.

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