Marseille boss Marcelo Bielsa had an indifferent afternoon on Sunday as he watched his side secure a 2-0 victory over Toulouse in Ligue 1. 

He would have been quite happy with what he saw on the pitch as his side extended their winning streak to eight games, but one specific incident didn't go down so well with the experienced Argentine boss.

Hot coffee 

In fact, as Bielsa casually decided to take a seat on an icebox near the touchline, he was given the shock of a lifetime as he had actually perched himself on a boiling hot cup of coffee. 

This, unsurprisingly, didn't go down well with the Marseille boss as he kicked out at the cup - to the great amusement of the bench. It appears that it was one of the Marseille coaches who had placed the coffee on the icebox, so he may well have been the subject of abuse when Bielsa cooled down...


All-in-all, though, it was a fine day for Bielsa and Co. at Marseille as they moved seven points ahead of champions Paris Saint-Germain at the top of Ligue 1. 

First-half goals from Nicolas Nkoulou and Andre-Pierre Gignac were enough for Marseille to secure all three points as they cruised to victory against mid-table Toulouse.

Marseille have, without a doubt, been the most exciting team in France this season, having already struck 25 goals in their opening fixtures. The likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Edinson Cavani and Co. at PSG already have a lot of making up to do in order to catch Bielsa's talented side.
