The second-fastest red card in A-League HISTORY! Perth Glory star Jordan Elsey is sent off for rash tackle just 57 SECONDS into clash with Western Sydney Wanderers

Jordan Elsey's home debut with the Perth Glory turned into a nightmare as he received a red card just 57 seconds into the game against the Western Sydney Wanderers. Elsey's impulsive tackle on Yeni Ngbakoto from behind led to his dismissal from the field, leaving the referee with no other option. This unfortunate incident occurred during Friday night's match. With 1 minute and 34 seconds on the clock, the red card handed to Elsey marks the second-fastest time a player has ever been sent off in the A-League. The record for the fastest time still belongs to former Melbourne Victory goalkeeper Ante Covic, who was shown a red card only 1 minute and 2 seconds into his team's game against the Brisbane Roar back in 2011.
