PAOK’s Juan Insaurralde Shown YELLOW Card For Punching Olympiakos’ Delvin Ndinga Square In The Face! (Video)

By Chris Wright

Granted, there are some fairly serious footballing rivalries around the world but PAOK and Olympiakos share one of the most intense inter-city hatreds in the known universe, with derby games between the two clubs regularly peppered with fierce hostility.

The two teams met on Sunday evening, with PAOK scoring a 2-1 home victory over their Athens-based rivals – though the game, as you’d imagine, didn’t pass without controversy, with the post-match griping largely centred around one incident involving PAOK centre-half Juan Insaurralde and Olympiakos midfielder Delvin Ndinga.

On the hour-mark, with a set-piece about to be delivered into the penalty area, Insaurralde cleaned Ndinga’s clock with a vicious left-handed swinger and somehow managed to stay on the pitch until full-time – receiving nowt but a yellow card from the referee for his troubles…

Which leads us to ask: what exactly does one have to do to get a red card in the Greek Super League these days?

    Am I right in recalling that Robbie Keane once delivered a similar right hook to David Beckham’s coupon in a United v Leeds game at Old Trafford – right under Dermot Gallagher’s nose – and escaped with a booking which resulted in Gallagher being dropped from refereeing for quite a few weeks?
