AC Milan’s Gennaro Gattuso Headbutts Tottenham Assistant Coach in European Cup Match

It won't likely have the same backlash worldwide as Zinedine Zidane's infamous World Cup headbutt, but Gennaro Gattuso is making some news for his latest header — one that came on the sidelines.

In an European Cup match on Tuesday, Gattuso, playing for AC Milan, headbutted Tottenham assistant coach Joe Jordan right between the eyes.

Jordan, who seemed ready to go toe-to-toe with the shirtless Gattuso, seemed unfazed by the headbutt. The two were then separated by coaches and officials.

Jordan, however, got the last laugh. Tottenham won the match 1-0.
