VINE: Derry City's Ryan McBride with one of the strangest tackles that you'll ever see

Men and ball.

Michel Platini may want to eradicate the physical side of football but if I ever meet the Frenchman then I'd happily tell him that he's an idiot because the art of tackling is just as important as any other skill.

As a lifelong member of the defenders union, it's a real thing by the way, I was always raised knowing that the best slide tackle is when you win the ball but take a little piece of the man in the process but it seems that Ryan McBride has gone one better.

Derry City picked up a well earned point last night after a battling 0-0 draw with Cork City at Turners Cross and while there was no goals scored, Candystripes defender McBride made one of the strangest tackles that you'll ever see.

Am I the only one who thinks that he was really unfortunate for the ref to give a foul against him?

Take a look.
