It’s not often you find yourself left in the unenviable position of having to sympathise with Mark van Bommel, but during AC Milan’s 3-1 Coppa Italia victory over Lazio last night one such instance occurred.

With Lazio 2-1 down and defending a late corner, Brazilian centre-back Dias took an almighty swing at Van Bommel’s temples and caught the Milan midfielder with a cowardly blow to the side of the head that left him sprawled on the turf for a couple of minutes.

Unfortunately for the Dutchman, both officials missed the assault and, rather than a penalty and a straight red, Dias was free to scamper off without any punishment whatsoever…

Of course, it’s hard to feel sorry for Van Bommel given his entire career to date, but at least his thuggery and gamesmanship usually has a gossamer-thin footballing pretence. What Dias did was just vicious, pure and simple.

    Hopefully the same thing happens to Terry tomorrow.

  2. Al says:

    couldn’t have happened to a nicer bloke and he barely even caught him. Ask any player who played against Holland in the 2010 world cup if he desrevd that, what goes around comes around

    what a cunt, dias should have the bloody book thrown at him

  4. Tinez says:

    I have no doubt that Van Bommel will even that score up when they play Lazio in the league. The dutchman is a disgrace. That said its a straight red for the coward dias. My only regret here is that its not Sergio Busquets getting the fist.

  5. MessiBalls says:

    Thank you Karma, just a few more now to even up the score………

    Next on the list:

    De Jong etc etc etc…………..

  6. Archbishop Betty Snagcock says:

    @MessiBalls do not take Mario ‘the second coming’ Balotelli’s name in vain!

  7. dennis says:

    The guy has received a three cup game suspension from the Italian FA. Not that much for such a punch.

  8. Questionable says:

    at 0:35 i assume van bommel is saying, “Sleep with your eyes open tonight you Brazilian C**T, your in my realm now.”

  9. MessiBalls says:

    Apologies Betty,

    Balotelli is a great player if he’d leave the nastiness out. By far not the worst but i’m just going off the Scott Parker incident.

    But De Jong on the other hand, I do not like him

    Dias has been banned for 3 matches after tv evidence
