Thought Mike Dean was a tad harsh? Watch the amazing moment Porto defender Danilo is sent off after the referee walks into him.

Back-pedalling official Luis Godinho bumps into Danilo, whom he’d shown a yellow card to just minutes earlier.

Clearly believing that Danilo had shoved him, Godinho pulls out a second yellow and gives the player his marching orders.

A disbelieving Danilo later posted about the incident on Instagram:

It certainly all makes Sofiane Feghouli’s challenge on Phil Jones look like an imprisonable offence.
