In which 35-year old Sfintul Gheorge veteran Julian Bursuc goes out with a bang against Iskra Stal in the Moldovan top flight, quite literally in fact – by smacking the referee one across the chops with a brutal right-hook during an altercation on the touchline, before promptly announcing his retirement from the game altogether…

That’s one way to avoid a three-match ban I suppose, though the imminent prison sentence may overshadow that somewhat.
