Arsenal’s Flamini puts a stop to Nabil Dirar’s showboating with ‘full-blooded’ tackle [GIF & Vine]
- August 3, 2014
With so many silky passing players, Arsneal need a hound dog to do the dirty work, and Mathieu Flamini fulfills that role with relish.
With Monaco seeing out their 1-0 lead against the Gunners today, Nabil Dirar was doing a bit of showboat dancing by the corner flag in order to run out the clock.
Flamini was having none of this, and put an immediate stop to it with a full-blooded challenge, going through the Moroccan for a short cut, taking man, ball and all.
He won the ball, but he could easily have been booked for leaving the ground, and following through with his second leg.
