Dirty Tackle

Holger Badstuber does not appreciate his teammates questioning his challenges at the training ground and he proved this when 18-year-old Bayern youth team product Emre Can reacted negatively to a lunging tackle. When Can protested, Badstuber grabbed him by the neck and told him to "shut up!"

Philipp Lahm and Franck Ribery were quick to diffuse the situation, which occurred during a training session that was open to the public. Clearly Bayern are ready for the season to start.

Badstuber plans on sneezing in the face of a Bayern groundskeeper and then yelling at the man for not saying "thank you" later in the week.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
