The Argentine Premier Division kicked off this week and we’re off to a strong start with this blooper from Talleres defender Matias Catalán.

We’re fairly sure that Kevin MacAllister’s red card foir Union Saint-Gilloise this week did not require an intervention from the Belgian Pro League’s VAR.

Heaven knows what he’s complaining about.
