Nigel de Jong: Hatchet Man

October 5, 2010 — by Sean4

Quite a half-year’s work for the Dutch holding midfielder. He’s been dropped from his national team after his latest leg-breaker against¬†Newcastle’s¬†Hatem Ben Arfa over the weekend, and who could forget his flying kick to Alonso in the World Cup final, or the way he broke US MNT player Stuart Holden’s leg in a friendly in the lead up to the cup.

You’d like to think he’d get his, but this sort of player never seems to be on the receiving end.
