Manager headbutts his own player after he’s substituted

Crazy scenes.

While the majority of domestic leagues around Europe have finished, they’re still playing in Spain as the issue of promotion is yet to be decided in La Liga 2.

This evening, Getafe took on Huesca and with the first-leg tied at 2-2, it’s clear that the tension was high as the sides met at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.

The hosts took the lead after their defender Cala opened the scoring on 37 minutes, and with the visitors in need of a goal, their manager decided to make a change.

In the 55th minute, Huesca midfielder David Lopez was replaced by Alvaro Vadillo, but it’s fair to say that Lopez didn’t take the decision too well.

In fact, after exchanging some angry words with his coach, Juan Antonio Anquela, you can clearly see Anquela headbutt his own player.

Getafe won the match 3-0, but there’s no doubt about what the main talking point was.

Take a look.
