Any misconceptions that you might have had that women’s football is less aggressive than the men’s game will be obliterated by these scenes at an encounter in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
In the 13th round of action in the top-flight encounter between Zeljeznicar and Mladost, Silvija Sekacic attacked Adnu Ljubanovic in an incredible fashion.
The former pounced on her opponent in an MMA style and landed several punches to her head, according to Drukjj.ba. By the time her team-mates arrived on the scene, the situation had calmed down.
“What words can you use to describe this act and yet stay polite? It is enough to say this kind of behaviour has nothing to do with common sense. People like Silvija don't belong in football and she deserves to be suspended for life,” Mladost said in a statement following the incident.
Now the disciplinary arm of the nation’s FA will decide whether to ban Sekacic from the game for life.
