Lets take a look back to the 2010/11 Champions League round of 16 first leg clash between AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur at the San Siro.
It’s exactly 10 years since the fixture and it’s one that will forever be remembered, mainly due to fiesta Italian Ivan Gennaro Gattuso attempting to take on the entire Spurs team.
The game ended 1-0 to Tottenham thanks to a Peter Crouch winner but the fixture will be best remembered for Ivan Gennaro Gattuso behaviour after the fiery Italian spent more time fighting with people than actually playing football.

It all began on the pitch when Gattuso adopted the tactic of trying to put off Peter Crouch by putting his hands in and around the Englishman’s face as much as possible.
Eventually things boiled over and an altercation between Gattuso and Spurs Joe Jordan on the sideline really added fuel to the fire.
The following clip comes from Sky Sports as Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp discuss Gattuso’s behaviour and how they were baffled he didn’t get a red card.
