DTotD: Young Lanus fan spits at Ronaldinho

Dirty Tackle

Shortly before halftime in Flamengo's 1-1 Copa Libertadores Group 2 draw at Lanus, a young fan of the Argentine side repeatedly spit at Ronaldinho as he prepared to take a corner kick. Another fan, probably a toddler, threw a lighter.

What kind of heathen spits at Ronaldinho though? Spitting at anyone is vile enough, but this kid should get a lifetime ban from every football ground in the world for spitting at someone who has brought so much joy to the game. Yes, Argentina and Brazil are rivals, but that's no excuse. OK, maybe it is.
