Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele showed this week that he is happy to get involved in the rough stuff.
Dembele ruffled the feathers of Sergio Ramos in Spurs’ Champions League win over the reigning champions after a high tackle on the Real Madrid captain – moments after catching him with a flailing arm to the face.
But while the 30-year-old indulges in physical confrontations on the pitch, he is clearly a fan of combat off the pitch too.

Dembele met WWE star and big Spurs fan Finn Balor at the club’s training ground on Friday, as they posed together with the Irish wrestler’s ‘Too Sweet’ signature gesture.
Spurs posted pictures of the duo together, with Balor currently in the UK as part of WWE’s European tour.

“I personally became a Spurs fan from a young age,” Balor said previously.
“Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s my brother Colin was a Spurs fan and of course we had a great team then with the likes of Lineker and Gascoigne and the FA Cup victory of 1991. That era was what really sucked me in.”
