Nigel Reo Coker

Former West Ham United star Nigel Reo-Coker was involved in a scuffle while playing for chivas last weekend.

Former West Ham United midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker had quite a weekend as he was slapped during an MLS game while playing for Chivas.

Reo-Coker always had a temperamental side during his days at West Ham and that flared up again as he got involved in a confrontation with FC Toronto star Jackson.

Jackson slide in late on the former Hammer who reacted furiously to the challenge, which sparked a frenzy as the duo tussled and were immediately surrounded by teammates and the match official.

Reo-Coker has been playing in North America since he left Ipswich Town in February 2013 when he joined Vancouver, enduring a difficult spell before a move to Chivas this year.

As the referee appeared to be dealing with the matter, Reo-Coker pushed Jackson away which prompted a slap from the Toronto star right in front of the official.

They both received red cards for the incident which is at the very beginning of the following video.
