Gervinho picked up a red card for a horrific challenge during Hebei CFFC’s 1-0 loss to Henan Jianye F.C. in the Chinese Super League on Sunday.
The former Gunner lost the ball and upon trying to win it back… found another… two.
Obviously, we don’t know what goes on in Gervinho’s head (and never did) so it’s hard to say whether he was deliberately lashing out at the opposing player’s groin. However, no matter the intention, there can be no argument that it was definitely a red.
Hopefully, the player’s ‘goods’ are alright. Blimey Gervinho.
I love that he protested afterwards, as if he got the ball… well he did technically.
