Admit it: There’s truly nothing like watching someone completely lose their cool, especially when nobody (seriously) gets hurt.
During a recent Canadian Premier League contest between Valour FC of Winnipeg and HFX Wanderers FC in Halifax on Monday, Valour FC’s captain Jordan Murrell delivered an epic meltdown.
With his side down 1-0 in the late stages of the second half, Murrell became quite frustrated with the decision-making of the game’s referee. During a stoppage in the 88th minute, Murrell gave the official a shove before running back into position.
That earned the 26-year-old defender an automatic red card and reduced his side to 10 men for the remainder of the game. Upon receiving his ejection, Murrell completely lost his cool in front of a crowd of over 6,000 at Wanderers Grounds.
If you were a table at that soccer stadium on that day, you’d wish you weren’t.
Cenas lamentáveis na #CanPL!— CanPL Brasil (@CanPLBrasil) August 5, 2019
Jordan Murrell lateral do Valour foi expulso (corretamente) e revoltado com o cartão saiu de campo chutando as mesas onde estavam torcedores do Wanderers. E vocês conhecem o Canadá, dificilmente isso passará batido lá.
Since it appears nobody was injured, it’s pretty safe to say that his reaction to the situation was hilarious.
There likely wasn’t anyone present that deserved that less than the poor man sitting behind that table doing his job. On top of that, the looks on the faces of the women seated behind him are incredible. It was as if nobody could believe what they had just witnessed.
And can you blame them?
Murrell’s rage resulted in an amazing athletic feat. Have you ever seen a water bottle take off faster after being punted? This one rocketed out of frame instantaneously. In fact, at this time, we cannot confirm or deny that it has since returned to the ground.
If he’s capable of hammering a table like that with his foot, we can only imagine what he’s able to do while clearing balls out of his defensive zone.
Murrell has since turned to Twitter to apologize for the outburst. The CPL has yet to announce any supplemental discipline for the incident.
HFX Wanderers FC went on to secure the 1-0 victory. In the process, Valour FC’s winless streak was extended to 11 matches.
We’re sure that string of poor outings didn’t have any impact on Murrell’s flare-up.
