This is what happens when footballers are left unoccupied and to their own devices for a prolonged period of time: they get restless, and like beasts in the jungle, start to antagonize each other for sport.
David Villa started it all. El Guaje flicked Filipe Luis’ ear while awaiting to start a training drill, which then escalated into a full-blown tit-for-tat flicking and scratching war.
Filipe Luis ‘went too far though’, accidentally scratching Villa on the back of the head, which El Guaje hilariously tried to portray as a real injury.
Faking injury, even in a game of play fighting. Too much!
