Watch: Ricardo Quaresma Sent-Off 7 Minutes After Being Subbed On

Watch: Ricardo Quaresma Sent-Off 7 Minutes After Being Subbed On
By Arthur James O'Dea

Tonight's Turkish Cup semi-final between Besiktas and Fenerbahce contained a whole host of footballers you have not thought about in quite some time.

For the visitors, you had names like Roberto Soldado, Martin Skrtel and Mathieu Valbuena in the match-day squad.

On the home side there was former Real Madrid man Pepe, former Sevilla, Inter Milan and Cardiff City man Gary Medel, former Sunderland player Jermain Lens, former Liverpool winger Ryan Babel and, of course, a player who has briefly appeared in the Premier League - as well as nearly everywhere else - Ricardo Quaresma.

In his third season with the club, the Portuguese has found a decent home in Turkey to realise some of the incredible skills at his disposal.

In tonight's hotly-contested tie however, we saw a little bit of his darker side.

With the home side trailing Fenerbahce 2-1 at the half-way mark, Quaresma was substituted on for the second half at the expense of Babel; seven minutes later, he was sent off.

Striking out at an opponent and receiving a justly-deserved red card, the Portuguese did not take his dismissal with a whole lot of good grace. Proceeding to kick off a minor brawl, the European Championship winner of 2016 also found the time to throw in another hay-maker in the ensuing fracas.

Although the game would end 2-2, Quaresma's red card was not the only work the referee had on the night; two Fenerbahce players would not see out the 90 minutes either.
