Tackling from the technical area
OTP has heard of managers ‘kicking every ball’ from the dugout, but this incident takes the mickey a bit. Mexico coach Javier Aguirre was sent-off during yesterday’s draw with Panama after kicking out at Ricardo Phillips as he made a run down the wing.
“I would like to apologize in order of the Mexican fans, the Mexican team, the Mexican press, everyone involved with the Mexican national team, to the officials and workers because I didn’t have very good conduct,” said Aguirre. Nor a very good translator, by the sounds of that quote!
Harshly, Phillips was also sent-off for reacting to being kicked by the opposition manager!
