The Most Bizarre Yellow Card Ever Given Happened in Greece

A yellow card was given to a player for wiping his shoes on the referee’s socks.

The hilarious incident happened during the Greek Super league game between Xanthi and AEK (1-1), on Sunday night.

While the referee was drawing a line with white spray for a free kick just outside AEK’s penalty area, he accidentally sprayed Xanthi player Brito’s boots.  Brito then turned and wiped his boots on the referee’s socks; which in turn gained him the yellow card, since the referee failed to see the humour in the incident.

Brito then took the free kick and scored Xanthi’s goal.
