Bryan Mélisse has gone down in soccer history, but not for the right reasons.
The French defender for Luxembourg’s F91 Dudelange was ejected during the final moments of a Champions League preliminary round match against Hungary’s MOL Vidi FC on Tuesday after he performed this appalling drop kick on opponent Mate Patkai:
One tweeter dubbed it an “early contender for worst tackle of the season.”
ESPN also noted it could already be “the filthiest tackle” of the 2018-19 season, which has only just begun.
MOL Vidi won 2-1 winners and progressed to the second preliminary round phase of the Europe-wide tournament, which was won last year by Spanish giants Real Madrid.
