The weekend was a great one for football, as there were a number of memorable matches played out. However, there were quite a few light-hearted moments that were worth remembering as well.
Here are the 10 most funniest moments from the weekend’s football.
Arsenal were given a tough test against Crystal Palace over the weekend, but Aaron Ramsey had his own battles to fight inside the field, as his duel with the corner flag became one of the more entertaining moments of the match.
Meanwhile, at the Liberty Stadium, there was not much to talk about, as Swansea City and West Ham United played out a tough 0-0 draw. However, one of the few highlights of the match was West Ham manager Sam Allardyce laughing at Swansea defender Chico Flores after the Spaniard dived right in front of the touchline.
Andros Townsend has been in the news for all the right reasons. He has been in great form for club and country, and has locked down a right-wing berth for himself at Tottenham. However, his biggest highlight this weekend was the summersault he took over the advertising hoardings into a photographer during the Spurs’ game against Hull City.
In the weekend’s biggest clash, Chelsea winger Eden Hazard put on his dancing shoes against Pablo Zabaleta, leaving the Argentine defender doing the splits.
Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp used his own football skills for other reasons, hitting a match official with a thunderous volley.
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho seemed to enjoy Fernando Torres‘ late winner a lot, jumping into the stands to celebrate with the Chelsea faithful.
In Hong Kong, celebrations proved to be a bit more costly, as a player got injured after scoring a goal when his own teammate jumped into a slide tackle onto his face.
Mascots in in amongst the act as well, as Burnley’s Burtee Bee was sent off for handing the linesman a pair of oversized spectacles after he had made a dodgy decision.
He was even sent into jail for the action that the officials didn’t seem to take too well.
Talking of red cards, a referee in Kuwait went a little berserk during a match, kicking and punching the players who were playing before handing out what looked like 4 or 5 red cards. Ouch!
The picture of the weekend comes from QPR’s game against Burnley, when Joey Barton was hit by a bottle by someone from the stands.Published 28 Oct 2013, 13:53 IST
