Dirty Tackle

You might think that winning the Premier League title would be enough to momentarily distract Nigel De Jong from his unquenchable bloodlust, but it wasn't.

In the aftermath of City's improbably stoppage-time win against QPR to take the title last Sunday, De Jong, with his winner's medal around his neck, chased after Man City's kit man, Chappy, and took him down with a sliding challenge. He then pretended to punch Chappy before ripping an inflatable dolphin from his hands and beating him with it. De Jong then walked away with a smile on his face, finally satisfied. For now...

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