Adebayor sent off for 'karate kick'

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

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."

Definite Red card, but I am glad he took to media to apologize. You can kinda see he pulled back slightly, but foot to the face is no Bueno. haha

Adebayor doesnt give a fuck thats just how he is. You saw his celebration against Arsenal after he left. Usually players raise their hands and dont celebrate against former clubs out of respect, this guy does a victory lap around the whole field and then knee slides. Don't get me wrong I always liked Adebayor, even have the kit, but he just has no class.

If he's pleading his case then i believe he never saw the player but you still cant have your foot that high when there might be an opponent close by. I think a yellow wouldve been the correct decision

how is that a yellow? theres putting a foot up high which can get a yellow, but that was foot high up plus studs up. he didnt mean it but its still incredibly reckless

I see why i was wrong. The defender was at the location to get the ball before adebayor so it was reckless to say the least. Deserved red

This guy has no respect whatsoever, I remember how he celebrated against Arsenal. Really classless.

I never liked the guy nor thing he's any good anyway :D

This is a clear red/
