Footballing Houdini Bolo Zenden completed an interested week by being attacked with a laser pen during last night’s Uefa Cup tie between Marseille and Ajax. Footage of the match clearly showed a green laser flashing across the Dutchman’s face.
Play was briefly stopped by the referee after Zenden complained about the incident. A stadium announcement had to be made to ask the Ajax fan responsible to kindly stop trying to blind the players!
The motive for the attack? No, not a negative response to his magic tricks – cold-blooded revenge. There was a similar incident in the first-leg when a Marseille fan targeted Ajax’s Gregory Van Der Wiel.
