Gaston Aguirre latest player to attack feathered friend

San Lorenzo defender Gaston Aguirre will forever have the stain of pigeon blood on his conscience after killing a bird during a recent match. The Argentinian’s shot connected with the bird, who sadly didn’t have the quick reactions of his mates, killing it instantly.

The poor little blighter didn’t exactly get a big send-off. Scooped up by the referee, dumped off the pitch and play continued. At least Aguirre was in reflective mood. He said: “I kicked the ball and, poor pigeon. Now I will be remembered as the pigeon killer.”

This reminds us of the time Evil Lucas Neill tried to wipe out a bird.
