Romanian Soccer Coach Repeatedly Kicks and Hits Player on Bench (Video)
Any time we give you an Eastern European soccer highlight, you can bet it’s not going to be a great goal. It’s going to be a riot, or a coach tripping an opposing player. Or, in this instance, straight-up assault.
This Romanian soccer coach manages a junior team, and the below video has gone viral. It shows him walking the sideline, then calmly stepping up to a seated played and stomping him several times.

I don’t know what provoked him, but there’s no way it’s a reasonable excuse for his actions.
His name is Liviu Petrache and he WAS the coach for the CSMS lasi junior team. He’s since been fired as a result of this video.
I’m just glad it was caught on tape. I doubt this was the first or last of such incidents, otherwise.
