FORMER Leeds United star Tony Dorigo was a headache from the jealousy of his girlfriend.
NHS chief Gareth Senior, 48, saw Dorigo in the store with Claire Joss and shouted: "I knew you were after her."
Dorigo, 52, said: "I heard some shouts and felt excessive noise behind me.
"He cursed and spoke all kinds of things. I did not catch everything.
"Then he stuck me in. He caught my nose and top of my lips. I thought he had some blood.
"I managed to get back or my nose would be broken."
IT manager Visoki was convicted of an assault that caused a real bodily injury in a court in Leeds.
His lawyer, Stuart Field, said: "Leeds United is his passion, and among his heroes was Tony Dorigo."
He added that Senior will now be the subject of an investigation by the NHS and maybe lose his job.
A 18-month relationship with NHS colleague Miss Joss, 43, ended two months before the conflict.
She said she was returning the object to the White Company in Leeds and recalled, "Gareth yelled at me, the words about how Tony would kill."
She said she had arrived between Doriga and her former partner to try to stop any kind of violence and admitted that she "cried a lot" to Seniors while the threats continued.
She added: "He said it was not over and would break his legs."
Refusing the attack, Visi told the court: "My feelings were strong, but I was not a violent person, and I was never a violent person.
