Bit harsh maybe......
He is a quality player there is no denying that at all.
He stands up for himself like most players in the league. Its good to see a bit of passion and aggression in players. Never did Robson, Ince, Keane, Cantona, Hughes etc etc any harm whatsoever.
You see little players like Liam Miller squaring up to John Terry and Claudio Pizzaro and Fabregas squaring up to every other player, its funny and refreshing to see and anyway, its bound to happen and is part of the game.
Now I dont particularly like Torres cos he plays for the Pile but I see nothing wrong with a bit of feistiness, it makes for good viewing.
Anyway Rio showed him who is boss.......;-)
(look at Wazza'a Sig)
