Orebro defender Eidhur Sigurbjörnsson has pulled off arguably the strangest headbutt of all-time after conceding a goal in a Swedish league game.
When Everton manager Roberto Martinez accused Branislav Ivanovic of violent conduct, in a match against the Toffees, Chelsea fans must have thought they had found a candidate for the silliest headbutt – or non-headbutt in this case – ever seen in the game.
But one Icelandic defender has gone one better this week after appearing to headbutt the crossbar during a league fixture.
Eidhur Sigurbjörnsson has earned himself cult status after showcasing his nut job credentials during a game against Sundsvall.
Turning out for Orebro, the 25-year-old was clearly frustrated at the dismal start his side made to the game, with their opponents scoring after just three minutes of play.
So as he watched the open goal roll in, the former Iceland under-21 international opted to react in the only way he knew possible – by leaping up towards his own goal and headbutting the frame.
The impact is audible on the clip provided and appears both bizarre and painful to anyone watching.
In any case, the incident failed to motivate his teammates, with Orebro going down 3-1 to Sundsvall.
Though the "clash" is unlikely to garner the same kind of coverage Ivanovic’s non-bite/butt did, it was certainly an amusing incident.
And we can’t imagine Sigurbjörnsson being charged with violent conduct against the goal frame any time soon either.
