Luis Figo all set to further infuriate Barcelona fans

“Roll up, roll up, get your pig’s heads!”

Pig’s Head

As gestures of football annoyance go, they don’t come much more terrrifying than the time Barcelona fans hurled a pig’s head at Luis Figo for joining Real Madrid. What the head actually symbolised, no one knows. But of all the animal body parts to have chucked at you, it’s up there with skunk foreskins and lion brains.

Of course, you’d assume that Luis Figo would now be rather reluctant to further antagonise his former club. But you’d be wrong. According Marca – the hugely popular Spanish website – Figo will be returning to the Nou Camp this evening, not to sit in the box as he did during the group stages, but right there on the bench next to Mourinho. Bold as brass.

Barcelona fans, grab your butchery tools.

    Marca have culled this secret information from Mourinho’s press conference, in which he answered “Yes” when asked if Figo would be on the bench. Scoop and a half, Marca!
