Proof that relegation is bad for your health

Rosario Central president Horacio Usandizaga is not likely to win any Boss of the Year awards after he was secretly filmed making a speech in which he threatened to kill his club’s players and coaching staff.

The under-fire president came out with guns blazing (hopefully not too literally) as he defended his leadership of the relegation-threatened club. Unfortunately, the video was leaked to the Argentinian media and has caused outrage in the South American country.

An irate Usandizaga said: “Central are going to get out of this situation, we are going to move forward. We are going to get out of this or I’m going to kill the … players, coaching staff and anyone else. If Rosario Central was going to fall I will kill all those sons of bitches, be they players or coaching staff.

“The players want to be paid one million dollars to escape relegation. I’ve never seen a million dollars in my life!”

Maybe Football Focus should invite Daniel Levy onto the show and see what happens!
