Footballer kicks referee, charged with attempted murder

Violence and football work in tandem at times, whether it is off-the-field or on-the-pitch incidents. In a shocking case, the Sport Club Sao Paulo player William Ribiero got furious after referee Rodrigo Crivellaro called a foul against him. The footballer completely lost his cool and kicked Rodrigo in the vital area of the head.

As a result, Rodrigo got admitted to the hospital while the game got postponed. Afterwards, the team sacked Ribiero while the authorities slapped an attempted murder charge. The Sao Paulo club termed this incident as one of the worst in the club’s history since 113 years of its formation.
