Yeah, slapping a player is not something a coach is supposed to do. Frankie Hejduck gets slapped after the game. Smartly, it appears that Hejduck didn’t react or slap back. Usually that’s the person who gets caught or in trouble. But there’s video of the incident below.
From the Washington Post:
Hedjuk missed out on the U.S. match in Azteca due to injury, so he wasn’t able to use the incident as motivation. This wasn’t like the Mourinho love slap to Pujol, which was more out of respect and fun – although maybe a bit harder. Perhaps he was trying to get a rise out of Pujol.
