ForeverBayern 28 days ago Bayern Munich, Germany 7 316 The often controversial forward launched himself at a Defensa y Justicia defender to try and win the ball, but ended up catching the poor bloke right on the jaw. ADEBAYOR'S RECKLESS TACKLE ¡ADEBAYOR ESTÁ LOCO! ¡PATADA HISTÓRICA! El refuerzo top de Olimpia le pegó un brutal patadón a Coacci de Defensa y Justicia y vio la roja en su primer partido como titular en la #Libertadores. INCREÍBLE. pic.twitter.com/DZ6emGIxVL— SportsCenter (@SC_ESPN) March 12, 2020 nsurprisingly, Adebayor was given his marching orders by the referee, but he actually tried to plead his case. He may have been going for the ball - as is often the case with these tackles - but he put his opponent's health under serious threat. There's no argument, it was a red card. Adebayor did take to Twitter to apologise, writing: "SEA, tough game today! What a great team spirit, and what a win boys @elclubolimpia. Sad to leave the pitch early on a Jackie Chan challenge. It was never my intention to hurt my opponent, And I am glad he is okay."
