Barnet Player-Manager Edgar Davids Unleashes His Inner Pitbull, Gets Sent Off For Elbowing Opponent (Photos)

By Alan Duffy


A genuine, proper footballing legend, Edgar Davids continues to make the headlines, albeit in the lowly environs of non-league football. As player-manager of Barnet, the Dutch star picked himself to play a centre-half role against Wrexham on Sunday. However, the veteran superstar’s day would end in an early bath after a dramatic finish to the game.

With the Bees leading 1-0 late on, Davids was slow to ive the ball back to Wrexham after the Welsh side had been awarded a free-kick. Stephen Wright tried to wrestle the ball out of Davids’ hands, only to receive a swift elbow to the face as a massive bawl ensued.

Davids, who had been wearing the no. 1 jersey, was sent off along with Wright before Dean Keates scored for Wrexham from the subsequent free-kick.

But that wasn’t the end of the drama. with Johnny Hunt launching a wild, flying challenge in the direction of Curtis Weston, which reportedlt broke the Barnet player’s leg. Hunt was, not surprisingly, sent off, while  Wright, the victim of the Davids’ elbow, apparently now needs a skin graft. Crazy!

    What an utter twat Davids is.

  2. Margrave Kunibert XI says:

    The bigger issue to Davids behaving like an ass is the circular red card. Never seen that before.

  3. Chris Waddle City says:

    That’s a hockey red card. The yellow is a square (results in a rugby-like sin bin penalty), and the green is a triangle (which is a caution, like a yellow normally is).

  4. JJ says:

    Was a mad UFC move by Edgar,but just a natural defence mechanism when someone that tall comes rushing into you like that….Can understand the impulse there.

  5. dutchwhoateallthepiesfollower says: Here are some moveing images to go with the story and the photos.

    Edgar Davids, What a legend!

  6. JJ says:

    It was a bit ufc from Edgar. However I reckon it’s just a natural reaction when someone comes running into you at the speed.So can see the both sides here.

  7. TravisKOP says:

    @margrave: was thinking the same thing! wtf is that thing?!

  8. Jarren says:

    Looks like one of those 90’s Tetley tea bags that’s been used as a lady towel

  9. JJ says:

    It did seem a bit UFC.However, I think Edgar was just reacting when someone much bigger than you comes running towards you, so can see the body’s reaction there.

  10. Tom the bees fan says:

    i was at the game. they were trying to wind him up all game but he should no know hes going to get that. hes edgar fuckin davids!

    it was our new sponsors first game so it was either a disaster with the player manager getting sent off
    or a clever move by the management that has got our new sponsor (toshiba medical..)lots of screen time (see this article).
    he likes to keep us entertained anyway. i thought he had he really good game before that playing at sort of centre back

  11. Vimes says:

    Presumably, Stephen Wright was sent off for assaulting Davids’ elbow with his face?
