More South American craziness

Following the footage of a Brazilian coach thumping the referee uncovered by OTP the other day, we can now bring you a club president running onto the pitch to confront the ref. And we are pretty sure he would have swung a few punches given half-a-chance.

Guaratingueta president Carlos Arini felt obliged to give the referee a piece of his mind after a pretty awful penalty decision and red card during his side’s match against Atletico MG last night. He barged onto the pitch, refusing to be restrained by his players as the match officials hid behind armed police!
