Adel Taarabt With the Worst Penalty Ever For Benfica B.. Seriously, it’s So Bad

Adel Taarabt With the Worst Penalty Ever For Benfica B.. Seriously, it’s So Bad

Adel Taarabt took the award for the worst corner kick we’ve ever seen earlier this month.

And he’s now a contender for the worst penalty ever taken with this effort for Benfica B against Porto B earlier today.

The Moroccan playmaker is yet to make a top team appearance for the Portuguese giants since signing a five-year contract with the club in June.

It was reported that Taarabt was told by Benfica to lose 1.5kilograms before he would get a spot in the Benfica team.

And he’s been working towards that by appearing for their second-string since the end of November.

It’s made five eventful appearances, producing this ridiculous corner kick before scoring a beautiful solo goal last week.

But Taarabt’s penalty this afternoon is just the latest example of how it’s never boring with the former Tottenham and Queens Park Rangers man.

Benfica went on to lose 3-0 to their rivals, capping off a very disappointing afternoon for the midfielder.
