Recent Dirty Stamping Incidents In Football

We tend to see footballers losing their heads more and more, knowing quite well that there are hundreds of cameras capturing their every move. When will these players learn that there is no place in football for these malicious challenges?

The Fan Park crew looks at a few recent stamping incidents in football.

Gary Medel On Neymar

In Brazil and Chile’s match in London, the Cardiff midfielder shamelessly stepped on Neymar’s right-shin while the Brazilian was on the floor. The affair got heated and despite the obvious stomp, Medel walked away without punishment. Let’s see if any action gets taken!

Steven Gerrard On Ander Herrera

The retired England international had been on the field for just 38 seconds when he received his marching orders for a stomp on Manchester United’s Spanish midfielder. It was out of character, and the Liverpool legend apologised for his actions.

Martin Skrtel On David De Gea

The Liverpool defender was chasing down a through ball from a teammate as his side was losing 2-1 to Manchester United, and when De Gea rushed out to collect the ball, Skrtel maliciously left his foot in there. The ref missed the incident, but Skrtel received a three-match ban for his crime.

Diego Costa On Martin Skrtel

The Chelsea striker is known for the way he rattles opposing defenders, but when this incident occurred, it was a step too far. Although he and his boss, Jose Mourinho, denied any wrong-doing, the Spaniard was later punished with a three-match ban for his challenge.

What should happen to these offenders after video evidence proves that they are guilty?
