Malta Coach Knocks Himself Out During Spain Game and Forgets Second-Half

Malta Coach Knocks Himself Out During Spain Game and Forgets Second-Half

Malta’s manager endured a night to forget last night – literally – as his side were thrashed by Spain – and he was left nursing a pretty nasty head wound.

The minnows were soundly beaten 7-0 by the 2010 World champions and 2012 European champions inside the Estadio Ramón de Carranza Stadium in Cadiz, with the Spanish providing seven different scorers in the emphatic victory.

La Roja were already on their way to a straightforward win in the 64th minute when Malta manager Ray Farrugia smacked his head off the roof of the away dugout, causing him to forget the final 20 minutes, according to the Mirror.

Following the slightly bizarre incident, Farrugia was seen receiving treatment for a small cut on his forehead and looking slightly dazed as play rumbled on in-front of him.

Speaking to the media after the full-time whistle, via the Mirror, he explained: “Of the last 20 minutes, I don’t remember hardly anything.”

What do you think of the comical mishap?
