Watch: Carlos Tevez breaks keeper’s jaw with flying knee

This was not Carlos Tevez’s finest moment.

Former Premier League and Argentina star Carlos Tevez is back playing in his native country with Boca Juniors. Over the weekend, Tevez made news for some not-so-ideal reasons.

In a match between Boca Juniors and Newell’s Old Boys, Tevez was hurtling toward goal, and after having his shot saved, leapt into the face of opposing goalkeeper Ezequiel Unsain.

Unsain reportedly had to have jaw surgery after the incident. It’s ugly.

Below is the full video, and a Vine.
