Football video: Michael Ballack assaults a pigeon

German star joins football’s bird bullies

Following in the footsteps of Gaston Aguirre and Lucas Neill, Michael Ballack is the latest football to take out his on-pitch frustrations on a feathered friend. Ballack was caught on camera striking a pigeon during Chelsea’s warm-up before the FA Cup tie with Ipswich Town.

The pigeons of west London will be hoping Ballack is not a superstitious chap since he then went on to score two goals. It could become part of his pre-match ritual!
