The Butcher of Bilbao
In 1983, Diego Maradona joined Barcelona and was instantly a marked man. Atletico Bilbao defender Andoni Goikoetxea produced one of the worst tackles in history when he broke Maradona’s ankle.
Today, Goikoetxea is known as the Butcher of Bilbao and was given a 16-match ban for the incident. He had the boots which he was wearing put in a glass case which features in his living room. Great guy:
When Maradona recovered he sparked a fight between the teams in retrobution.
