Russian futsal player takes out ref with a crunching haymaker (Video)

This makes Costa look like an angel

Throwing the ball in a referee’s face is seldom the least offensive act in a game.

But that was just the set-up for the haymaker that would follow from this Russian futsal player with precisely zero chill.

After having a foul called against him, this ill-tempered player petulantly flung the ball in the official’s direction which forced the ref to come forward to show a well-deserved red card.

While the card was being brandished, a right hook from nowhere connected with the his jaw but, to be fair, he took the shot like a champ.

Who knew that futsal could be so ugly?
