Valencia manager Marcelino injured himself celebrating Simone Zaza’s late winner against Real Sociedad on Sunday.
The late winner produced wild scenes on the bench – but the Valencia boss, who was appointed in the summer, perhaps would end up regretting his surge of joy down the touchline after seeming to tweak his hamstring in the celebrations.
Despite looking in agony on the sidelines, he was fit enough to undertake his post-match media duties to suggest that his injury may not keep him out of action for too long.
But he managed to laugh off the pain and told AS: “As long as it’s only me getting injured, it’s not a problem if it’s the coach.
“I pulled it quite hard. I’m getting on a bit, after all.
“Those are situations in which I should control myself better. I’ve come away with a bit of a limp.”
