Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse more stories

Welcome to The Onion Bag, your biweekly look at some of the weird and wonderful stories from the beautiful game.

In this episode, we look at the never-ending war of words between Diego Maradona and Pele. The Argentinean has fired a pretty cheap shot at the Brazilian legend!

Elsewhere, Gabby Agbonlahor is in fear of his life right now, as he has been receiving social media death threats after taking out One Direction's Louis Tomlinson in a charity game over the weekend. Hell hath no fury like a teenage boy-band fan. 

And Paolo Di Canio is even angrier than usual this week after it was revealed that his Sunderland team lost to the Black Cats' under-21 side in a friendly behind closed doors. Yikes.

Lastly, we've heard a sheepish apology from Tottenham's Kyle Walker, who's been caught doing something unbefitting a professional footballer.
