Retro Football: Barcelona Fans Throw Pig’s Head At Traitor Luis Figo, 2002

By Ollie Irish

Luis Figo’s £37m move from Barcelona to arch rivals Real Madrid in the summer of 2000 didn’t go down well at the Camp Nou, of course.

So when the Portuguese winger returned there in November 2002, Barca fans were waiting to bombard their former hero with an assortment of interesting missiles. These included whiskey bottles, cigarette lighters, golf balls and, most famously, a pig’s head.

The game, which was stopped for 13 minutes so that the 98,000 crowd could cool off, finished 0-0.
