Eintracht Frankfurt defender David Abraham was sent off for an awful challenge – on the opposition manager.
The incident happened deep into stoppage time during Frankfurt’s 1-0 defeat away at Freiburg.
Racing to fetch the ball to take a throw-in after Freiburg had cleared their lines, Abraham barged into 54-year-old Christian Streich, knocking him flying as he stood his ground inside his technical area.
The incident sparked a brawl between the players.
This is total insanity 😱
