Rayo Vallecano coach Paco Jemez was on the receiving end of a flying two-footed tackle by one of his own players during Saturday night's La Liga clash with Espanyol, after right-back Quini slid uncontrollably out of play as he attempted to save a throw-in.

The 25-year-old's clumsy - yet obviously accidental - challenge, caused the unsuspecting tactician to topple over, and he didn't look particularly happy about being left battered and bruised on the bench, although that might have had something to do with the fact his side were already 1-0 down with less than 20 minutes on the clock.

Sergio Garcia had already given the visitors a ninth minute lead at Estadio de Vallecas, and things didn't get much better for Jemez after his side finished on the wrong side of a 3-1 scoreline.

Leo Bapistao equalised on the stroke of half-time for Rayo, but Lucas Vasquez restored Espanyol's lead with a little under 15 minutes remaining and Garcia grabbed his second of the game to ensure all three points.

The result lifts Espanyol to tenth place in the table with 20 points from 16 games, with Rayo Vallecano three points and three places behind, currently occupying 13th spot.

It was certainly a night to forget for 44-year-old Paco, who didn't get the reward his brave attacking tactics deserved, and finished the night with grazed knees after the surprise wipe-out by Quini, who might have a few extra laps of the training field to do as punishment on Monday.
