How nasty was Mr Gattuso’s headbutt (I know, Dad) on innocent Joe Jordan last night after the feisty AC Milan v Spurs Champions League tie at the San Siro (see YouTube ad nauseum)?
Twitter and the panel in the Supersport studio were of the opinion that he should be shot, hung, drawn and quartered and then shot again for waving his forehead near the auld Scotsman’s nose.

Only one person posed the question:

…what was JJ’s face doing in range in the first place?

But it was very naughty of Gennaro and no-one should defend headbutting in football, should they?

Least of all… er… Joe Jordan.

JOE JORDAN almost sparked a touchline punch-up after Younes Kaboul was sent off yesterday.
Spurs coach Jordan went nose-to-nose with Newcastle goalkeeping coach Andy Woodman as they traded insults.

Jordan screamed ‘Any time you like, any f****** time you like’ after Woodman told the former Manchester United and Scotland hardman where to go following Kaboul’s dismissal for butting Cheik Tiote.


Joe Jordan – the innocent old assistant coach – going nose-to-nose with someone on the touchline?

Joe Jordan – the innocent old assistant coach – defending his player after he was sent off for a headbutt?

I, for one, cannot believe it.

It does, however, beg the question again: just what was Mr Jordan’s face doing an inch from Gennaro Gattuso’s in the first place last night?

Two to tango.
