Hard tackle puts Osvaldo Alonso in middle of MLS All-Star Game controversy

Osvaldo Alonso is the kind of player you love to have on your team and the kind of player you hate to play against. Apparently, that even carries over to exhibitions.

Alonso's yellow-card earning tackle (above) was a significant part of why Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola refused to shake Caleb Porter's hand after the MLS All-Star's won 2-1 on Wednesday. Immediately after the tackle, Guardiola turned to Porter and started complaining as if to say "control your players." Porter just shrugged and sat back down on the bench.

It should come as little surprise that Alonso was not exactly apologetic.

It should also be noted that Alonso had some moments of brilliance in this game as well.
