IT JUST AIN’T HAPPENING: Red mist for Man City midfielder Fofana in Bastia win

Manchester City's Seko Fofana was sent off after a bizarre head-butt in SC Bastia's 1-0 victory over Montpellier on the weekend.

Fofana, who joined Bastia on a season long-loan last summer, reacted after a confrontation with Montpellier's Jonas Martin, by violently head-butting his opponent in the 65th minute.

In what has been a successful spell so far for the Frenchman, having started 19 games across all competitions, his overreaction on the weekend will have no doubt caused Fofana some embarrassment.

The 20-year-old was quick to apologise via Twitter following the match.

Translates to: I would like to apologise to my apologise to the club, my teammates and the fans, of course with Jonas martin for this dangerous gesture

Translates to: that should not seen on a football field!
