Top-5 Hot-Headed Manager Moments

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 13 January 2016, 15:35

Following on from Steve Cotterill's bewildering outburst at his own Bristol City fans in the aftermath of the club's defeat at home to Preston (see video below) The Sack Race takes a look at five examples of managers who have let their anger get the better of them on the touchline, whether it's at players, supporters or even a security guard!

Nigel Pearson (Leicester City)

Nigel Pearson was no stranger to controversy during his time in charge of Leicester City, as this video perfectly shows, with the hot-headed boss telling a fan to 'fuck off and die'...

Paulo Wanchope (Costa Rica)

This remarkable footage shows the then Costa Rica manager Paulo Wanchope brawling with a security guard during a match between Costa Rica U23s and Panama U23s.

Paolo Di Canio (Swindon)

Paolo Di Canio has, and always will be, a controversial figure in the world of football. During his playing days his feisty personality saw him embroiled in a number of questionable outbursts, which were transferred into the managerial arena. In his first job at Swindon the Italian was infamously involved in a post-game scuffle with striker Leon Clarke...

We can't talk about PDC and fail to mention his confrontation with the travelling Sunderland supporters following the club's 3-0 pummeling at West Brom, which proved to be his final game at the helm.

Delio Rossi (Fiorentina)

Back in 2012 Fiorentina boss Delio Rossie saw red when he physically attacked his own player - Adem Ljajic - which subsequently resulted in the sack.

Alan Pardew (Newcastle)

Another gaffer who lives for drama is Alan Pardew. Pardew has seemingly calmed down since joining Crystal Palace at the start of 2015, however it was a completely different story at Newcastle, as this video perfectly encapsulates.

And for pure comedy value, who can forget The Wealdstone Raider...
