Crazy manager ! IMO deserved sacking

sokrates4384d ago

Disagree. Give him a fee that pays what he did.

It's not because of the broken dugout it's not because of the money!but because of the high morals of the club they were ashamed and so Justice was served

Idiot, but he is not the only manager who has act like this on the bench. There have certainly been many similar episodes that the camera man hasn`t managed to catch up...bujt yes; Idiot behavior!

karim4385d ago

Agreed other managers didn't behave well but that Cluj was way over the line breaking property is a crime !

Was he drunk terrible behaviour from a man who should lead by example

sokrates4384d ago

Example, sure, but living with the pressure as a manage evrybody does some stupid moves once i a while. I think a fine would be enough.

karim4384d ago

But that's the dumbest thing i've seen in a while

sokrates4384d ago

Didnt you watch Etoo? Its more stupid to attack human beings than a window. Thats my opinion

There were worst than Eto'o once Roy Keane ended the career of a rival player INTENTIONNALLY
