RUSSIAN football witnessed one of the deadliest stares of all time over the weekend.
Zenit Saint Petersburg’s game at Dynamo Moscow witnessed a hilarious moment as winger Malcom sent the ball back to the referee with unerring accuracy.
If anything, he’s hit it too well.
That’s because his lob clocked the ref right on his chest, prompting him to raise a brutally sarcastic thumbs up.
The man in question was Evgeny Turbin, who has become an overnight internet sensation.
After 56 minutes, he booked Dynamo forward Kirill Panchenko and instantly regretted losing his focus on the ball.
Luckily for Malcom, Turbin didn’t let how unimpressed he was turn into another card, and the Brazilian got off scot-free.
The former Barcelona winger came off the bench in Zenit’s 2-0 win to make his second appearance for the club.
His time in Russia has already been marred by a racist banner condemning the arrival of a black player.
Zenit fans have repeatedly urged the club to maintain their so-called “tradition”, releasing an online manifesto that read: “We are not racist and for us the absence of black players is just an important tradition, emphasising the identity of the club and nothing more.”
