Egdar Davids has always been able to look after himself, but the former Ajax, AC Milan and Dutch international midfielder maybe went a little too far on Sunday.

Now 40 and working as player-manager for non-league side Barnet in England, Davids was sent off for a deliberate elbow in the face of an opponent—as per ITV Sport.

The recipient was Wrexham's Stephen Wright, who was later sent off himself, and the clash happened amid what ITV Sport have classified as "a 20-man brawl."

Turns out Davids was playing in central defence for his Blue Square Premier outfit. Turns out he's still every bit as competitive as always.

Sunday's match finished 1-1, which leaves Davids' team ninth in the conference as they seek promotion to League Two.
