While the striker received death threats – football fans reacted quite differently…
Here’s how football fans reacted on Twitter following Gabby Agbonlahor’s unnecessarily hard challenge on One Direction star Louis Tomlinson during Stilian Petrov’s charity game.
The pop star left the field injured and throwing up!
Seriously Agbonlahor received death threats for making fall the guy of One Direction? With what they have threatened him? Nail polish?

Somewhere out there, there is a One Direction fan making a voodoo doll out of Gabby Agbonlahor. — Paddy Power (@paddypower) September 8, 2013
Agbonlahor’s tackle on Louis Tomlinson is hardly worth the term “clattered”. Seen worse tackles in the Woolworths lunch queue. #OneDirection

Respect and thanks to Gabby Agbonlahor. Will Louis Tomlinson’s Mum be writing a sickness note for his school teacher today?
