Nasty Ligue 1 Boot To The Face Courtesy Of Bastia's Yatabaré

Our second studs-to-the-face controversy of the week comes courtesy of Sambou Yatabaré, a Malian international who is on loan to SC Bastia from Olympiacos. Barring a referee exchange with the Premier League, he should not be confused with his brother Mustapha, who plays for Guignamp.

Yes, he got a red for this stray boot to the head of Reims' Gaëtan Courtet.

Formerly of Caen and Monaco, this is 25-year-old Yatabaré's second spell in Corsica, having been a permanent signing in 2012-13. He isn't all kicks to the head, in fairness.
