Contrite Lucio regrets moment of madness

One of the many remarkable facts about Lucio concerns his goals-to-bookings record. In eight seasons as a Bundesliga centre-half, the Brazil captain has scored almost as many times (20) as he has collected yellow cards (21). Lucio was only booked once in the whole of last season, and has yet to be yellow-carded this term. No-one can doubt his credentials as a fair and sporting footballer, but he is still only human: Saturday's defeat in Stuttgart saw him sent off for retaliation.

The incident occurred after 70 minutes with Bayern 3-0 down. Lucio took possession and set off across the centre-circle, closely followed by Swiss full-back Ludovic Magnin. The Stuttgart man tugged at the Munich centre-back's jersey, and received an elbow in the face for his trouble. Match official Torsten Kinhöfer immediately pulled out the red card. "Some referees would send him off for that, but some wouldn't,“ Ottmar Hitzfeld commented.

The man most upset by the moment of madness was Lucio himself, regretting the second dismissal of his Bundesliga career. "Everyone who knows me will also be aware I'd never deliberately elbow anyone,“ he declared on Sunday via Bayern media director Markus Hörwick. The Brazilian was at this point already on his way to join up with his national squad in South America. "It was frustration, nothing pre-meditated. I'm extremely sorry about it.“ However, that will be little consolation to the league leaders, as the defensive organiser is almost certain to be suspended for several weeks.
