Gabby Agbonlahor is certain to attract the ire of devoted Directioners after the robust tackle.
Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor will be public enemy number one in the One Direction community after flattening one of their beloved members in Stiliyan Petrov’s testimonial.
Band member Louis Tomlinson was one of an array of stars taking part in the match to honour former Villa and Celtic captain Petrov, but will be going home with a few bruises after he was clattered and left writhing on the pitch in agony by a robust shoulder-to-shoulder with Agbonlahor.
Luckily for Tomlinson he was spared further rough treatment as he was hauled off moments later, but not before being physically sick as he exited the field.
Our advice to the teen heartthrob? Stick to singing or hit the weights.
