Watch: Vermaelen almost decapitates Porto's Andre Silva for dismissal on debut

Share This

Is Thomas Vermaelen suffering from a lack of match practice?

The former seldom-used Barcelona defender only signed for AS Roma on loan last week, and has made his introduction by receiving two quick-fire yellow cards to receive his marching orders at FC Porto.
