Video: Kung Fu fight - Diego Maradona vs the Butcher of Bilbao
Back in 1984, Diego Maradona was a Barcelona player, and his side came up against Athletic Bilbao in the Cop del Rey final at the Santiago Bernabeu. It was a game marred with violence as Maradona was hacked down a number of times by the Basque side.
Earlier that season, Bilbao’s Andoni Goikoetxea (known as the ‘Butcher of Bilbao’) had tackled Maradona in a game that severely injured the Argentina striker. The horrendous tackle kept him out of action for months!
Watch the video of the incident below.
