Football can be ugly sometimes

Posted on | September 25, 2008 | No Comments

Less then a year after Taylor‘s horrible tackle on Eduardo another similar incident happened in Tuesday League Cup game Middlesbrough against Manchester United.



Middlesbrough captain Emanuel Pogatetz had a criminal tackle on Brazilian youngster Possebon. Possebon required oxygen while it was removed from the field.
Pogatetz immediately  received the red card. What’s really annoying is that Pogatetz protested at the referee decision.
Manchester manager Sir Alex Ferguson was really disappointed about the Pogatetz attitude. The Reds feared that Rodrigo has broke his leg but the Wednesday scans revealed that he suffered only ligament damage.
The Austrian will serve at least three-match ban. After the match Pogatetz accepted his fault and apologized.
Pogatetz declared that he hopes the Brazilian will recover soon.
However this things should not happen in a sport like football. One possible reason why this things repeat so often could be the tolerance of the English Federation.
Taylor received only three-match ban after broking Eduardo’s leg.
This kind of injuries could end the players career and the Federation should do something about it.
