AC Milan’s Ante Rebic can have no complaints after he was sent off for a chest high studs up karate kick challenge in AC Milan’s Coppa Italia match against Juventus.
Immediately after Cristiano Ronaldo had fired a penalty against the post, the ball broke upfield and as Juventus’ Danilo was about to collect, Rebic came flying in and pole-axed his opponent.
Initially referee, Daniele Orsato, reached for the yellow card, but perhaps thanks to advice on his headset, this was quickly upgraded to a red.
You can watch the footage, via BT Sport and ESPN.
