A reportedly humiliated Henning Berg stormed out of Blackburn’s Christmas party after being forced to dance on a stage with a Michael Jackson wig and a stocking on his head.
When the DJ asked for volunteers to play some games, a Rovers executive put manager Berg forward. The Norwegian initially threw himself into the role by putting a Christmas stocking on his head, but began to get increasingly uncomfortable when the DJ told him to dance.
The 43-year-old snapped when someone tried to but a Michael Jackson wig on his head. He exited the stage – unfortunately, having already removed his headgear – to return to his table, made his excuses and then left the event.
After one win in nine games, the party for 200 Ewood Park staff was supposed to instill a bit of camaraderie at the club. As with most things at the club since Venky’s took over, it didn’t quite work out as planned.
