Milan Jovanovic: Football’s Mike Tyson.By: The Offside | May 11th, 2009
No, Milan doesn’t have a devastating hook or a comedic lisp. Nor does he have a giant tattoo on his face – though I suppose that’s the next step on the path to crazytown. Milan Jovanovic, striker for Belgian side Standard, simply got hungry midmatch on the weekend and decided that the best way to curb his hunger was to take a bite out of his opponent, Tyson style (for anyone confused, the reference is after the jump). Fortunately Milan couldn’t get a solid grip with his choppers and the opponent went unscathed.
The act itself is worrying enough. What’s really frightening, however, is the commitment of his performance – the man actually looks like a rabid dog.
I suppose by these standards having a diva moment isn’t all that big of a deal.
