Ugly Side of the Beautiful Game

There is an ugly side of the beautiful game. Yes, and some great players and now coaches have done some things they wish they could take back. Here are a few of the more sensational acts that most of the actors wish they could reverse – I say most.  I believe Roy Keane, in his autobiography, refused to apologize for the revenge tackle on Harrlannd.

The game is competitive to say the least.  These are professionals getting paid, putting their bodies on the line, and where there's a younger faster player waiting in the wings to replace them in most cases, a player will come to do nearly anything to win, and anything to protect their name or themselves.  At times, emotions get the better of them and a player will do something he wishes he could take back.

Roy Keane malicious tackle - be aware this is a vicious tackle and not for youngsters to watch.  Really, a part of the game that you don't wish to see.

Frank Rijkaard spitting on Rudy Voller

Rijkaard later stated that it was his fault: "That day I was wrong. There was no insult. I always had much respect for Rudi Völler. But I went berserk when I saw that red card. I talked to him after the match and I apologized. I'm very happy that he accepted. I have no bad feeling about him now. We even posed for a very funny advert together, years after."

Eric Cantona’s karate kick into the stands.

Kieron Dyer Versus Lee Bowyer, no this isn't an undercard bout, but two teammates dueling it out and during the match no less.
