If you are looking for the dirtiest tackle of 2010 then you really could not look any further than this challenge. It is so clearly a mindless attack on an opponent that was delivered with such force and ferocity that referee Howard Webb for some reason felt that he could not possibly give the Nigel De Jong the red card it so clearly deserved. Perhaps the Englishman was shocked into submission and working as a Policeman in his spare time, he probably sees attacks like this on a daily basis? Wonder if Xabi Alonso received a Christmas card from the Man City man?
