Palmeiras captain Felipe Melo kicked official club photographer Cesar Greco while celebrating his side’s winning goal at Vasco da Gama on Sunday.

Fortunately it looked like more of a joke than a vicious attack from the former Brazil midfielder, who didn’t aim his kick hard enough to do damage.

O meio-campista Felipe Melo teve constatada uma fratura no tornozelo esquerdo e passará por cirurgia nesta segunda-feira. A recuperação se estenderá de três a quatro meses. Boa recuperação, capitão!#ForçaFelipeMelo pic.twitter.com/Uc08allN9n

At the time he was joining his teammates in celebration of Luiz Adriano’s 73rd minute goal, which sealed a 1-0 win in the Brazilian Série A match at the Estádio São Januário.

Unfortunately he also picked up an ankle injury during the game which looks set to sideline him for three to four months.
