Pictures: Mark van Bommel sends his friends yellow cards for Christmas

Notorious Dutch hardman Mark van Bommel reportedly has a funny side, if the pictures below doing the rounds are to be believed.

Our good friends at Brasil Mundial report that this is not a joke, and the PSV destroyer sent yellow cards to his friends for Christmas this year.

The 35-year-old defensive midfielder has developed a reputation for hard play over many years for the likes of Bayern Munich and AC Milan but appears to have a sense of humour.

So far in 2012/2013, van Bommel has picked up seven yellow cards (and no reds) in 13 appearances for PSV.

After the pictures below, is  a recap of just how dirty van Bommel was during the 2010 World Cup, where he did of course pick up a booking in the final.
