Round two: Xabi Alonso set for ‘kung fu’ re-match
Alonso and Adidas have produced pictures showing the Real Madrid midfielder sporting huge war wounds across his chest, having taken a boot to the ribs.
Friday night sees Xabi Alonso renew hostilities with Nigel de Jong, the Dutch terrier who planted his studs in the Real Madrid midfielder’s chest with a lunge befitting a martial arts ring, some 7,000 kilometres away from the scene of the crime four years ago.
The kung-fu kick left Spain open-mouthed and Xabi gasping for breath, but referee Howard Webb didn’t even deem it worthy of a yellow card.
And with the two players possibly set to face-off again tonight, Alonso has shown he is ready for battle should De Jong adopt the tactics of four years ago again.
