The pop star was crunched by professional soccer player Gabriel Agbonlahor as he played in a match in Glasgow, Scotland, yesterday (09.08.13) to raise money for former Aston Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov's charities following the retired sportsman's diagnosis with leukemia.
Louis was running down the wing for a Celtic XI, made up of soccer legends and celebrities, when he was scythed down by Villa striker Agbonlahor, who was playing for a Petrov XI, and after leaving the pitch in pain to a chorus of boos he started being sick on the sidelines.
The incident was witnessed by a 60,000-strong crowd at a packed out Celtic Park, but it sparked a furious reaction from One Direction fans - known as Directioners - who sent 26-year-old soccer player Agbonlahor death threats on Twitter.
One wrote: "This guy hurt Louis knee. I shall hurt your face. I better hear that you apologized or I will find you, and I will kill you. (sic)"
Another seething fan tweeted: "DON'T EVER TOUCH LOUIS AGAIN WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE (sic)"
He said: "It was one of those things. I'll apologies to Louis when we meet up after the game."
Last month, Louis signed up to be a professional soccer player by joining his hometown club Doncaster Rovers as a non-contract player.
He is expected to appear for the club's development side this season in order to raise money for children's charity Bluebell Wood.
