Manager dislocates shoulder celebrating goal

In football some managers give it the beans when their side scores, others go for the ice-cool "oh what, we scored? I'm busy looking into the distance as if contemplating something WAY too intellectual for you commoners" approach. Both do the job.

But whether you're a fan of a Paulo di Canio fist pump-and-gallop, the Mourinho knee-slide or a Roberto Mancini nonchalant flick o' the hair you'll no doubt have sympathy Estudiantes coach Mauricio Pellegrino.

Pellegrino was understandably delighted when his side took a 1-0 lead over All Boys last night.

Engaging in a little harmless jumping and a little bit of pointing, Pellegrino knew a goal of this magnitude deserved only one thing - an imaginary high-five.

Pulling his hand back to gain maximum velocity, the hapless coach unleashed an air-slap that would have left Hulk Hogan's palm a little pink. Sadly in demonstrating his joy in such a primal manner he popped his shoulder out of his socket.

“I have never seen a coach pick up an injury before!” he told Argentinean TV. “I have a chronic injury in my shoulder, it came out of place. Nothing more.”

Nothing more? What else has he done celebrating?!

Kind thanks to 101 Great Goals for bringing this little gem to our attention.
