Watch: Arda Turan threw his shoe at a ref

Wednesday January 28th, 2015

Interesting day at the office for the referees in Wednesday's Copa del Rey quarterfinal between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

First, a linesman hit Barca's Jordi Alba in the head with his flag. Later, another linesman, or perhaps the same one, had a shoe thrown at him.

Amazingly, hurling his equipment at an official was not enough to get Turan tossed from the game. The referee gave him a yellow card, which is a good thing because one Atletico player had already been sent off.
