For a player who didn’t really do much in the match, he shows an awful lot of anger and energy when his shot hits Etoo’s armpit – he pleads for a penalty kick in the dying minutes of the match. Ballack gets in the face of the referee in a display I’m sure he won’t be proud of when he looks back at this.
The Norwegian referee Tom Henning Ovrebo, a psychologist by trade, smartly ignores Ballack’s tirade. Chelsea had their chances in the match against Barcelona. They were up a man due to a questionable red card. Poor losers I’d say. Barcelona instead kept playing and Iniesta finally took a shot and scored.
The hilarious Ballack tirade set to Benny Hill, take a look.
