Football Video: Gabriel Obertan deserved a red card

Don’t let his sad parsnip face fool you – there is a dark side to Obertan (this was in United’s recent 3-3 draw with CSKA):

The more I watch this late tackle – not even a tackle, really, more a blatant kick-out at an opponent – the more I think Obertan deserved to be sent off for it. There’s no doubt that Deividas Semberas overreacted to the contact, but still, it’s a red in anyone’s book.
