Valencia manager injured celebrating winner

Valencia manager Marcelino injured himself celebrating Simone Zaza’s late winner against Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Zaza, who scored a hat-trick in last weekend’s 5-0 demolition of Malaga, struck five minutes from time after Igor Zubeldia and Geoffrey Kondogbia had been dismissed to clinch a 3-2 win as the visitors produced a stunning display of counter-attacking football.

The late winner produced wild scenes on the bench – but the Valencia boss, who was appointed in the summer, perhaps would end up regretting his surge of joy down the touchline after seeming to tweak his hamstring in the celebrations.

Despite looking in agony on the sidelines, he was fit enough to undertake his post-match media duties to suggest that his injury may not keep him out of action for too long.
