Espen Hoff was shown a straight red in the 40th minute of IK Start’s Norwegian Tippeligaen match against Sarpsborg for preventing a scoring chance. Frustrated by his early exit, he attempted a running kick at the open door to the dressing rooms, but forgot that football boots don’t grip slick flooring too well and ended up on his ass.
Without missing a beat, he got up and walked on, suddenly more embarrassed than angry.
Start went on to lose 2-1.
