It has been a rough few days for former Randers FC coach Ove Christensen. His team lost two matches in a row by a combined score of 8-1. After a 4-0 loss to Brondby on Monday, the Danish soccer manager unleashed his frustration on a reporter.

Christensen was asked whether he would remain the coach. He responded by telling the reporter that he can’t be expected to answer his “stupid questions” and smacked him in the arm. He was fired one day later. [Huffington Post]
