Well, that’s certainly one way to stop a striker from getting past you.
When Shakhtar Donetsk’s Luiz Adriano tried to collect a long clearance and head toward goal, FC Illychivets Oleksandr Chyzhov decided to stop the striker by launching a bone-crushing clothesline.
Seriously, it was like something straight out of the WWE:
Adriano dropped in a heap and was immediately out cold. Chyzhov clearly knew he’d landed a significant blow, as he frantically waved for the physio staff to come to Adriano’s aid.
Stunningly, Chyzhov wasn’t sent off for the incident, and fortunately for everybody, Adriano was reportedly fine after being stretchered off the pitch.
A few more “clothesline from hell” moves and Chyzhov could kick-start a new career for himself with the WWE like John “Bradshaw” Layfield.
JBL approves of this message.
