Former Russian soccer star Roman Shirokov isn't gonna let some ref give him a red card and get away with it..


FORMER Russia star Roman Shirokov punched a referee in the face and then kicked after warning "give me red, and I'll hit you" in an amateur game on Monday. The veteran midfielder, 39, approached referee Nikita Danchenko and knocked him to the ground with a vicious hook after being shown the red card.

The match official said: "I spent four to four and a half hours in the hospital, then another 15-20 minutes in the emergency room.

"They put stitches everywhere, did a bunch of examinations. And most importantly, everything seems to be fine with me. What does not kill you will make you stronger, as they say. Therefore, we continue to go further and continue to work.
