Juventus legend Edgar Davids nearly had a brawl with John Wilkes during match
The former Juventus, Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder was certainly a fiery character and that earned him the nickname ‘The Pitbull’.
Davids really was a fierce competitor and he rarely took his foot off the gas when he was out on the pitch.
That was even the case when the Dutch icon took part in the famous Soccer Aid charity match back in 2014.
While representing a World XI, the tigerish midfielder took absolutely no prisoners and almost got into a brawl with Robbie Williams’ mate Jonathan Wilkes
That was far from the only time Davids and Wilkes clashed during the match as well.
In another incident, Wilkes threw Davids’ shin pad away when it fell out of his sock, something the Dutchman clearly wasn’t overly pleased about.
So later on in the match – which the England XI lost 4-2 – Davids decided to get back at Wilkes by embarrassing him with some rather unnecessary, yet brilliant, skill moves.
There was some bad blood between the pair on the pitch, but they posed for a photo together after the game to remind people that there were no real hard feelings.
Davids officially retired from football the same year he clashed with Wilkes at Old Trafford in Soccer Aid.
