Move into position for the free kick, you have already cautioned him for the challenge. I would move quickly to allow the other team to take the kick, if the player continued with his "behaviour" I would have a word with him and make it very clear that if he continues that he will be having first shower! I don't think that there is anything to be gained by continuing with him then and a second yellow is not needed in my opinion although I'm sure most referees that respond will say that's what they would do....
Player claping a referee is dissent by action. Dissent by action, a player is cautioned and shown the yellow card. (Straight from The Laws of the Game).
By not cautioning the player a second time, and hence sending the player off for two cautions in the same game, opens up your game for more dissent and trouble from all the other players.
By stamping it out in your game, all players will be less likely to do it again and in future games.
A player breaking the Laws of the Game, his team should not receive an advantage when the player clearly breaks the laws, by remaining on the field. Off he goes.
My player mamangement would be to do this and to explain to him the 2nd offence he has committed is a yellow card offence and say to him because of your actions the laws of the game say that I now have to send you off for two yellow cards. Show him the 2nd yellow, then show the red. Sorry about that, but that is the law.
The other players will respect you for your descision and will certainly not try anything stupid.
I find it interesting to think that both player management answers given by goldenwhistle and Eca are valid.
I wonder if it is a good idea in Eca's case to take the hardline approach and say, well, too bad, that is the law. A lot of laws say in the opinion of the referee for example. So, we have a lot of lattitide to consider the circumstsances around an event.
In this case, it is at the same time as showing a caution so I feel showing two at the same time is not managing the game very well.
Every time I come away from seeing or having two cautions in close proximity to each other, I think, how could I have handled this differently to avoid the situation occuring like it did?
Any thoughts on ways to manage the situation differently to prevent the issue arising in the first place to give the opportunity for two cautions?
It was because the ref wasn't handling the game very well.
My team had a few reckless tackles committed against us but no yellow card to the opposition. So when my team mate committed a reckless tackle in frustration, the ref pulled out a yellow card against my team mate and my team mate clapped the ref for finally bringing out a yellow card. (The ref did not show a second yellow).
So if the game is handled well from the start by the ref, which means handing out a caution for a reckless tackle, even if it is in the first minute of the game. This must be done so that players do not become frustrated with the lack of action by the ref. If the ref does this from the start, the game will be managed well.
