Gattuso Headbutts Joe Jordan, Tottenham Assistant Manager: Video

AC Milan’s Gennaro Gattuso grabbed the throat of Tottenham assistant manager Joe Jordan and headbutted the Scotsman during Tuesday night’s Champions League match at the San Siro.

Gattuso became incensed during the match after Tottenham players and staff complained about an over-the-top tackle by former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini on Vedran Corluka. The referee gave Flamini a yellow card but the bad tempers flared up alongside the touchline when Gattuso and Jordan got into a verbal discussion which ended in Gattuso grabbing the throat of Jordan.

After the match was over, Gattuso again got in the face of Jordan. But instead of grabbing Jordan’s throat, Gattuso headbutted the Scot.

The disgraceful behavior by both Gattuso and Flamini was appalling. Gattuso later apologized but the damage had been done.
