Newcastle United Midfielder Cheick Tioté's Hissy Fit (GIF)

Posted: Updated:

Cheick Tioté was fortunate not to receive a straight red card for a malicious and mis-timed challenge on Tom Cleverley during Newcastle United's defeat at home to Manchester United, but he left a more comical mark in the game as well.

Penalised for a challenge on Wayne Rooney, Tioté did a masterful impression of *SPOILER ALERT* Willem Dafoe's death in Platoon.

Needless to say he disagreed with Howard Webb's decision. And for that the Ivory Coast midfielder was booked for dissent.
