MF Ol Skool Filez – Frank Rijkaard The Spitters

MistahFong Ol’ Skool Filez :
Frank Rijkaard The Spitters 

Rijkaard was involved in an incident with Rudi Völler when West Germany played the Netherlands in the 1990 World Cup. Rijkaard was booked for a tackle on Völler and, as Rijkaard took up position for the free kick, he spat in Völler’s hair. Völler complained to the referee and was booked as well. From the resulting free kick, Völler then went to the ground, according to himself to avoid a collision with Dutch keeper Hans van Breukelen, while others, notably Rijkaard and van Breukelen, saw it as a dive in hopes for a penalty. Van Breukelen was angry at this but Rijkaard again confronted Völler by twisting his ear and stamping on his foot. Both Völler and Rijkaard were sent off but Rijkaard again spat in Völler’s hair as they left the pitch. The German press nicknamed him “Llama” for his spitting.
