Crazy Goalkeeper Punches Referee

We suspect that the authorities will take a rather dim view of this one.

Former Bosnian international goalkeeper Romeo Mitrović saw the red mist descend during a game between Buducnosti and Banovica in the Bosnian second division. After being shown a yellow card, he thoroughly lost his cool, taking a wild swing at the referee which, luckily, didn't quite connect. The official then hastily retreated back to the halfway line to try and find safety in the company of his assistants.

The Bosnian FA have yet to respond to the incident, but we'd suspect they'll thrown the book at the 35-year-old.

What would he have done if he'd been sent-off? We dread to think.
