[Video] Watch Andy Wilkinson’s Horror Tackle On Thomas Vermaelen
Watch Stoke City defender Andy Wilkinson’s horror tackle on Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen during their 0-0 draw at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday afternoon
Arsenal came away from the Britannia Stadium with a 0-0 draw on Sunday afternoon. The game had everything you’d expect from Tony Pulis’ Stoke side, organisation, passion, defend first – attack later attitude, rowdy fans and a career threatening tackle.
Thomas Vermaelen was lucky to walk away from this ‘overzealous’ challenge from Stoke’s Andy Wilkinson midway through the second half. The defender can flying in, studs showing, straight through the back of TV5 and if the Belgian hadn’t expected it coming and had the time to ride it, he could have suffered a serious injury.
But hey, I’ve heard Wilkinson is just an honest English pro who ‘isn’t that sort of player’. Yeah right!
