For dramatic effect this incident has been labelled as a head-butt. In one of the looser senses perhaps it is but in truth it is little more than a forehead nudge. Still against the rules and therefore still deserving of a red-card but Alessandro Nesta is no Zinedine Zidane. Or Duncan Ferguson.
The former AC Milan and Italy defender, now 37 years of age, plies his trade for the Montreal Impact in the MLS. After a coming together with Sporting Kansas City’s Claudio Bieler, Nesta reactly angrily. Expressing that anger by pushing Bieler back with his forehead in a head-butting like motion. A red card followed and Nesta will now face at least three games on the sidelines. Montreal still won the game 2-1 so in the end Nesta’s dismissal had no Impact. See what I did there?
