Video – Lionel Messi Headbutts Yanga-Mbiwa – Was He Sent Off?


This is not good by the world’s best player Lionel Messi as he goes up to – of all people – former center-back Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa – and head butts him and then grabs hold of the Frenchman’s neck.

Remember what happened when Alan Pardew slightly head-butted David Meyler at Hull – he has the book thrown at him – so what happens with Messi?

Both players received yellow cards.

Come on!

    I’m a goo lip reader and I’m sure messi said some thing along the lines of “why did you leave Newcastle for you tit” as his hand cuddled his neck.

    another point I dont think it was a head butt either a think his head slipped.

    No I think he tried to do what Pardew said…

    ‘I tried to push him away with my head’

    Guess his arms must have not been working.

    Still not sure we were ever in for him. It was the press who started the story, not the club. They didn’t deny it to throw them off the Mitro story. The press claimed we made at least one bid, when we now know we haven’t bid. He would hold back Perez, who I reckon needs to progress now, not stagnate.

    I think Pardew should be headbutted for pushing Yanga-Mbiwa out without a fair crack

    I think most fans are quite relistic and can tell we’re not going to be a top six / eight side, but a lot seem to think because Pards and carver have gone they’re going to see a big difference with our players? Disappointment rings a bell.

    Disaster to hear colo has signed a new contract. He has been awful and a huge liability in defence. We win more games without him in the team.

    It means we won’t be signing anyone else in this window. No more Cb. Pathetic news really.

    We are probably going to get a hammering at Southampton but how we will do in the season will be seen in the effort on the match and not the scoreline.

    Will be inrinteresting.

    I wonder if the board are actively looking for defenders or they actually think getting Collo signed up on an extension is classed as a new signing?

    I would of rather we brought another CB in rather than Colo, however I will shout his name and support him no problem.

    Mac has stated he wants us to play 10 yards further up the pitch, that may have been a bit too brave but it could work now that we have Mbemba with pace to burn.

    I agree with so many, we now have an excellent coaching set up rather than a bunch of ‘jobs for the boys’.

    Just think it’s so refreshing that mac has brought Cathro in having never worked with him before.

    We won’t be bottom 6 this year, but we won’t be top 6 either.

    Joe Root 100 not out ! Ausies taking a bashing

    Has Collocini suffered more 4+ hidings than any other PL CB ever ?
    He’s been given an extension because he’ll go for free anyway and it will save paying 8M+ for a replacement. Not sure if it’s a good move but an absolute shite house of a Captain.

    I’m surprised to see Messi teaching Yanga how to use the head, it’s a waste of time, I could have told him that.

    James Toon you have to put Martoon in there for him to find it. Actually he hasn’t used a capital M for some time come to think of it.

    I can see a situation like ‘Falling Down’ developing at SJP with toonbotherer snapping and running amok trying to find the tousle-locked teamster.
