Bulgaria FC Boss Tries to Rip Up Referee's Cards in Disgust
Ah, to be a football manager.
Ask Alan Pardew, who almost lost his wallet when he flung himself in the crowd.
Ask Jurgen Klopp, who wants to see a doctor after his Borussia Dortmund side escaped in the Champions League.
But probably don't ask Antoni Zdravkov, boss of Botev Vratsa in Bulgaria.
When Nikolay Marinov brought down CSKA Sofia's Anicet Andrianantenaina - yes, that's spelt right - and was sent off by referee Alexandre Kostadinov, Marinov saw red. But so did Zdrakov. Literally. And grabbed it with all his apoplectic fury.
Only problem was, he couldn't quite manage to rip them up in his temperamental daze once he'd grabbed them off the whistle-blower, so tossed them away in a huff and a puff.
For the record, Sofia won 4-3, and the penalty was dispatched by ... Michel Platini. No kidding!
Perhaps Zdrakov should sit back and watch these clips to remember what it's all about.
