Former Plymouth Argyle and AFC Bournemouth defender Stephane Zubar will have a hard time explaining his behaviour during a non-league match yesterday.
Currently plying his trade with AFC Totton in the Southern League Division One South, the Guadeloupean footballer committed a criminal dive during the 2-1 loss against Thatcham Town.
With the game not in play, Zubar gets hit on the elbow with a stray ball while making his way back to his own end.
What followed was shamelessness of highest order as he turned back and took a moment before dropping on the floor.
The 34-year-old made a proper meal of it and the referee had to check on the ex-pro footballer as he fought a ‘career threatening injury’,
Football fans on Twitter slammed Zubar’s behaviour and loved it when the fan who kicked the ball started celebrating behind the net.
