Jordi Alba gets smacked in the head by linesman’s flag, Arda Turan fights back

If Diego Costa and Cristiano Ronaldo get charged with violent conduct for kicking people, then this linesman should get charged for smacking Jordi Alba in the head with his flag during the second leg of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid’s Copa del Rey tie. That’s assault with a deadly weapon. Jordi Alba needs to lead a “#DisallowLinesmanViolence” campaign. UPDATE: Arda Turan tried to fight back against the linesmen by throwing his boot at one after it came off as he was challenged by two Barca players. He was shown a yellow card (because he missed?), highlighting the hypocrisy of the day since the linesman who hit Alba went unpunished. #DisallowLinesmanViolence
