Argentina’s Javier Mascherano red carded for kicking driver carting him off pitch

Argentina’s Javier Mascherano was injured during Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier against Ecuador, and for some reason became irate at the driver of the cart that was carrying him off the pitch—possibly because he was splashed with water and held the driver responsible for some reason, but more than likely because Javier Mascherano is a complete dick—that he kicked the cart driver multiple times in the upper arm.

Mascherano was immediately given a red card for his act of idiocy, which didn’t sit too well with the 29-year-old Argentinian. Instead of heading to the locker room for treatment, the Argentine midfielder went after the referee who booked him, and had to be held back by cops in riot gear, because it’s obvious the only thing greater than his pain tolerance is his petulance and stupidity.

Mascherano is looking at a 2-game minimum suspension, and probably much more, after this incredibly ridiculous and juvenile display.
