Kaku Smashes Ball Into Fan’s Face From Point-Blank Range To Set Things Off In KC

Things went from bad to worse last night for the New York Red Bulls when the club allowed victory to escape its grasp by virtue of an 88th-minute Sporting Kansas City equalizer at Children’s Mercy Park, leaving the Red Bulls — last season’s Supporters’ Shield winners — with only one win from its opening six games.

To compound matters, Alejandro Romero Gamarra, better known as Kaku, was given a straight red in the fourth minute of second half stoppage time for smashing the ball into the face of an SKC supporter from point-blank range. 

The 24-year-old has been a figure of frustration this season after failing to force through a move to Club América over the winter (a transfer saga that included Kaku’s agent deriding New York for not paying his client back for furniture, an Uber ride and coffee). 

After 16-year-old Gianluca Busio scored the equalizer for SKC (his third straight match with a goal!), Kaku lost his shit, causing other players to lose their shit in turn. 

The Slo-Mo Goodness 

After the match, NYRB players went to check on the fan.

And Kaku later apologized on Twitter.

Also, here are the three straight goals that Busio has scored. None of them are going SportsCenter Top 10, but the guy's only 16!

Goal #1 vs. Montreal

Goal #2 vs. FC Cincinnati 

Goal #3 vs. NYRB
