Battle of the Barnet: Ronaldo (Corinthians) in trouble for pulling opponent’s hair

The real Ronaldo has found himself in hot water after the chunky striker was caught pulling an opponents hair in Corinthians match at Botafogo last weekend.

Although missed by the match officials, TV cameras caught Ronaldo grabbing a fist-full of Fahel’s hair. However, to the credit of the victim, Fahel appeared to care little about the incident at the time.

According to Paulo Schmitt, an official with Brazilian football’s disciplinary tribunal, “We’ve requested the video of the match and on Thursday I am going to analyse it and see if there was an infringement. I’ve never seen hair pulling in a football match.”
