Emile Sandoi, coach of Romanian side FC Agres, didn't get that memo though.

And when a Chindia Targoviste launched himself up the sideline on the counter, Sandoi gave into temptation and went for a sensational sneaky trip.

The 81st minute foul earned him an immediate red card, despite his protests that he was just returning the ball for a throw-in.

Replays showed the coach knew exactly what he was doing with the cynical foul.

The match ended 1-1 to keep Targoviste top of the league and Agres in fourth...with Sandoi facing a lengthy ban from the dugout.
