'He's forgotten how to play football': Fans react to Rebic horror kung-fu challenge as he sees red in Juventus-AC Milan (VIDEO)

'He's forgotten how to play football': Fans react to Rebic horror kung-fu challenge as he sees red in Juventus-AC Milan (VIDEO)
AC Milan forward Ante Rebic lasted less than 20 minutes on his return to football after the Croatian was handed a straight red card for a horror high challenge in the Coppa Italia semi-final second leg against Juventus.

Rebic saw red in the 16th minute in Turin following a crazy passage of play in which Cristiano Ronaldo first fired a penalty against the post for the hosts, before the ball was cleared upfield and Rebic launched a kung-fu kick on Juventus right-back Danilo in a wild attempt to win the ball.

The Croatian was given his marching orders by referee Daniele Orsato after a VAR review, sending his team down to 10 men with more than 70 minutes still to play and the tie finely poised after first leg ended 1-1.

Friday night's action in Turin marked a return to football in Italy after the enforced Covid-19 break - leaving some fans to ponder whether Rebic had forgotten how to play the game during the lengthy lay-off.

While Juventus failed to capitalize on their one-man advantage, they still edged into the final on away goals after the match ended 0-0 in front of empty stands at the Allianz Stadium.

They face a quick turnaround for the final in Rome on Wednesday, where they will face either Inter Milan or Napoli.

Napoli take a 1-0 lead into their home second leg against Inter on Saturday.
