Francesco Totti is i trouble once again. He famously spat at an opponant during the Euro 2004 championship. When his team Rome played against Bayer Leverkausen last wednesday (in an empty stadium due to UEFA punishment following the spectators attacking the ref Anders Frisk), Totti struck again.
Totti clearly lands a blow to Carsten Ramelow with his foot. The ref sees it, but only awards Totti a yellow card. The germans are outraged over the decision. Luigi Del Neri, Rome's manager, afterwards claimed that "football is a men's sport". That didn't lighten up the germans though.
As the ref saw the incident and took action, the UEFA say they will not investigate the episode further.
Is this a red card? Judge for yourselves:
"If guns don't kill people, people kill people - does that mean toasters don't toast toast, toast toast toast?"
