Nice's Todibo breaks record with fastest red card in just nine seconds against Angers
Jean-Clair Todibo set an unwanted record on Sunday after being sent off just nine seconds into Nice's Ligue 1 clash with Angers.
The former Barcelona defender was given his marching orders after a clumsy tackle on Abdallah Sima when he was the last man, leading to a swift decision from the referee.
Todibo's dismissal was the fastest card – yellow or red – shown in Ligue 1 since Opta started collecting data in the league in the 2006/07 season.
Nice made a number of high-profile moves in the transfer window but are still waiting on their first Ligue 1 win of the season.
Straight from kick-off, Angers move forward, and @jctodibo commits a foul. The referee then wastes no time in getting the red card out! Le Gym are down to ten men just seconds into the game...#OGCNice #OGCNSCO— OGC Nice (@ogcnice_eng) September 18, 2022
