My fellow football fans there are tackles that can be considered as poorly timed but not malicious, there are tackles that are in fact as clean as a whistle and the opposition player has simply made a meal of the incident in order to get his opposing player cautioned or sent off. Then there are those tackles which wouldn’t be out of place in the most violent Manga cartoons of yesteryear. Tackles that have you wondering whether the offender is in fact nothing more than a ninja in a football kick. Take a look at just one such tackle. Thanks to the excellent Dirty Tackle for bringing this to our attention. Oh yes, and for some unknown reason, perhaps related to mafia related betting patterns, the keeper was not, I repeat NOT, sent off!
