Argentine Soccer Coach Dislocates Shoulder While Celebrating (Video)

soccer coach dislocates arm celebrating victory

A coach getting injured? That’s not weird. After all, depending on the sport, they are often participating in practice sessions to some degree.  And even if they’re not taking part in the action, they are standing right there on the sidelines.

Now, a coach getting injured while performing a celebratory high-five to no one? Yeah, that is weird.

However, on Wednesday night, that’s what happened to Mauricio Pellegrino, the manager of top flight Argentine soccer club Estudiantes. During his side’s 1-0 win over Club Atletico All Boys (seriously, real name), the dude got excited about something, gave a pretend high five, and dislocated his shoulder.

Take a look:

After the game, Pellegrino said “I have never seen a coach pick up an injury before!” Then he explained that he has a chronic shoulder injury that was just acting up—an excuse you can choose to believe, or not. It’s up to you. Either way, this is pretty classic.
