In the Premier League, we’re often used to seeing managers pulling pathetic moves when things don’t go their way.
From Jose Mourinho’s post-match shrugs to Arsene Wenger refusing to shake another manager’s hand, we’re often treated to the ol’ toys-out-of-pram act from the boys in the dugout.
But Sevilla coach Eduardo Berizzo reached a new level of immaturity in his side’s Champions League clash against Liverpool, after being sent to the stands for throwing the ball away TWICE during the game.
The final straw happened around the hour mark with his side 2-1 down, when the Argentinian caught the ball as it was kicked out for a throw-in.
He then seemingly offered it to Reds defender Joel Gomez for a quick throw-in, but instead decided to throw it down to his side, much to the bemusement of Gomez and the Liverpool supporters behind the dugout.
Luckily, justice was restored when referee Danny Makkelie sent the coach to the stands, much to his dismay.
To be fair, it was all very funny.
Berizzo was clearly incensed by the decision and refused to leave the technical area as he exchanged angry words with Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.
In the end, it took a good shove from Sevilla midfielder Joaquin Correa before he headed down the tunnel.
In the end, he needn’t of worried.
His side secured a useful point against the Reds thanks to an equaliser from Correra.
Liverpool had earlier gone 1-0 down after just five minutes thanks to a strike from Wissam Ben Yedder, but they soon pulled two back with Roberto Firmino’s scrappy equaliser followed by a fine move from Mohamed Salah.
Liverpool also saw Gomez sent off in the dying moments of the game after picking up a second yellow card.
Ah, such drama.
