Flavio Zandoná, nicknamed Chino (Chinese), is a former Argentine footballer who played most of his career for Vélez Sársfield of the Argentine Primera, winning 8 honours with the club but he's most famous for only one punch. Zandoná started playing for San Lorenzo in 1994 as a centre back. He later transferred to Vélez Sársfield where he was almost exclusively used as a right back. Zandoná won 8 titles with Vélez, including the 1994 Copa Libertadores and Intercontinental Cup. Zandoná was known for his aggressive style on and off the field. Back in the 1995 'Supercopa Libertadores', Flamengo was giving Vélez a harsh lesson, with Romario, Edmundo and Rodrigo in fine form in a 3-0 thrashing. It all got too much for Flavio Zandoná, who first elbowed Edmundo and, after being slapped in retaliation, took out the Brazilian with a fierce left hook from behind. A brawl subsequently broke out on the pitch. This night the referee sent of Zandoná of course but Romario and Enmundo received a red card each one too ! Have a look back of one of the most famous punch in football history :
