News that a top commentator has been (allegedly) assaulted by a top football coach is all the more surprising because the episode didn't involve Alan Green.
Instead of the BBC's outspoken Ulsterman it was Portuguese Jorge Baptista who was on the receiving end when confronted by the ex Man Utd coach Carlos Queiroz. The incident took place at Lisbon airport.
"I will continue to be the same commentator and say my opinions whether he likes it or not," said Baptista. Greeny was there in spirit, if not in person.
