PICTURE: One Direction's Louis Tomlinson injured by Aston Villa's Agbonlahor

Aston Villa's Gabby Agbonlahor has attracted the wrath of millions of teenagers...

Gabby Agbonlahor has just written himself into Jaap Stam fame.

Stam hilariously delivered a crunching tackle on pop star Olly Murs in a charity game, showing he was not to be messed with.

Now Agbonlahor has shown a similar disrespect for another 'wannabe' footballer, One Direction's Louis Tomlinson. 

Tomlinson oddly signed a deal with Doncaster Rovers this summer, in a move which smacked of a publicity stunt by the League One club, yet to make an appearance for them.

He was invited to perform in a friendly for Stilyan 'Stan' Petrov which is taking place this weekend, being clattered by Agbonlahor.

The Villa man has become as a result a hero among 'real' football fans, but a hate figure among One Directioners, who are no doubt tweeted him death threats already...

You can see the after-effects of Agbonlahor's challenge below...
