Former Arsenal star punches opponent then goes absolutely crazy

Well it seems punching is a bit of a trend in football recently, firstly with Chelsea star Nemanja Matic planting his right fists into the face of team-mate Cesc Fabregas in their 5-0 win over Swansea during the weekend.

But when you do the action against, well, your opponents… the outcome is usually a straight red card.

Gervinho though probably didn’t understand that rule, because during the African Cup of Nations match between the Ivory Coast and Guinea, the former Arsenal attacker lashed out at midfielder Naby Kieta resulting in a sending off.

Usually the player would show slight dissatisfaction before trodding off the field, however Gervinho instead of showing some dignity went ballistic… hitting the ground in anger and pushing everybody in his way.

The Roma star may be gaining some supporters with his electric displays for the capital side in the Italian Serie A, but after this incident Gunners’ fans will continue trolling the 27-year-old… and his forehead.
