Video: On Loan Spurs midfielder red carded for kicking opponent in the face
How’s this for a painful challenge?
Kevin-Prince Boateng, the German midfielder who was loaned to Borussia Dortmund by Tottenham in the January transfer window, has caused a big fuss in the Bundesliga this week.
Trailing 3-0 to league leaders Wolfsburg on Tuesday, Boateng put in a nasty studs-to-the-face challenge. He was immediately sent off for the challenge, and actually had the audacity to question the referee’s decision.
Opponent/ victim Makoto Hasebe needed seven stitches in his face after the incident, and Bild are now referring to the high-kicking midfielder as ‘RAMBOateng’. Hilarious stuff.
Boateng is unlikely to play for Dortmund again, but incredibly, he will escape punishment for having the middle name ‘Prince’.
