Toon defender can’t resist temptation
Newcastle centre-back Steven Taylor incensed Cristiano Ronaldo with a slap/clothesline across the face and/or throat of Cristiano Ronaldo during last night’s match. Taylor then immediately dived into a two-footed challenge on Michael Carrick and still walked away with just a yellow card!
The Sun claimed C-Ron confronted his assailant in the tunnel at half-time, telling Taylor: “Your style of football is s**t”. Taylor is reported as hitting back with: “Well you are ugly!”
At which point referee Steve Bennett booked Ronaldo for crimes against trash talk and red-carded Taylor for the worst comeback in the history of the universe. See more angles of the incident after the jump.
