Cardiff's Sol Bamba sees red after trying to fight physio and his own manager
It's safe to say he was not in the best of moods today17:00 Saturday 10 December 2016, 17:00 10 Dec 2016
Cardiff City's Sol Bamba was not best pleased with the officials, his teammates or the medical staff in Saturday's game against Ipswich.
The Côte d'Ivoire international was receiving treatment when he decided that a schemozzle in order, and suddenly pushed the physio out of the way in order to square up to Douglas, the player who had made the unpleasant looking challenge on him in the first place.
He wasn't quite finished there however, as he also decided that he would have a go at a number of other Ipswich players (including Ireland's David McGoldrick, who stepped in to try and calm him down) the fourth official, and appeared to be ready to take on his manger Neil Warnock as well.
Bamba down injured. Physio on. Bamba shoves physio over. Goes to charge at Douglas (who tackled him). McGoldrick intervenes. Lots of shoving— Stuart Watson (@Stuart_Watson) December 10, 2016
Bamba went mental. Shoved own physio over, had a go at 4th official, dismissed, then fights with own boss Warnock. Never seen that before.— Stuart Watson (@Stuart_Watson) December 10, 2016
The people behind the Ipswich twitter account were perplexed by his actions, admitting that they really didn't know what was going on either as the incident erupted.

I'm not sure what has actually just happened, I mean....what on earth?!— Ipswich Town FC (@Official_ITFC) December 10, 2016
Footage shows that it was a poor tackle, and that Bamba was outraged with the officials and the opposition afterwards.
