Goalie punches ref for showing him a yellow card

Goalkeeper Romeo Mitrovic reacted with a moment of madness at the weekend when given a booking.

The 35-year-old, who plays with his side Branitelj in the Bosnian second division, responded to the yellow by throwing a hefty punch at the ref.

The ref ran from Mitrovic, understandably given the level of aggression the player was showing. He waited until he was a safe distance from the player before sending him off.

Mitrovic had to be restrained by several team-mates as he attempted to pursue the official.

Branitelj went on to lose the match and presumably their hot-headed ‘keeper is looking at a lengthy ban for the assault.
