Anderlecht coach kicks ball in anger, ball gets last laugh

Nearly everyone has had that moment of blind rage where they’ve tried to take out their frustration on a helpless inanimate object, only to come out looking like an idiot.

This blogger, in particular, once blew up after losing a game of Madden 2005 and broke the arm off his parents’ antique couch. (Sorry, mom and dad!) But unlike Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki’s bout vs. an exercise bike, my moment of embarrassment wasn’t recorded for all to see on YouTube.

Anderlecht coach Besnik Hasi also fell victim to this momentary lapse in judgment, and luckily we all get to witness the glory.

Oof! Not a good look. You have to love the gentleman in the suit to the right’s expression near the end of the video, though.

Where have we seen this happen before?

Oh yeah, that’s right. Good grief!

Zlatan Ibrahimovic calls Sacha Kljestan’s mustache ‘ugly’

Poor Sacha Kljestan.

Despite his team, Anderlecht, securing a surprising 1-1 draw against PSG on Thursday, it appears the American international still wound up taking one on the chin. Or in this case, the upper lip.

On-pitch trash talk is nothing new, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic bagging on Kljestan for his mustache is too good to pass up.

Ibra, — likely frustrated by his inability score four goals again — took out his aggravation on Kljestan.

Per Het Nieuwsblad, Kljestan claims Zlatan “told me I have an ugly mustache.” Now, not one to lay down, Kljestan offered this retort: “I told him he has a long nose!”

What witticism from both parties! No telling if either side stuck their tongue out or thumbed their nose. At least the mustachioed Kljestan kept it above the belt, unlike Joey Barton:

And there you have it. It can always get more immature.
