Manager sent off for tripping opposing player during second-tier clash in Romania

ROMANIAN second-tier boss Emil Sandoi took a novel approach to coaching as he tripped a rival player in an unbelievable clip.

Table toppers Chindia Targoviste were taking on FC Arges yesterday and broke down the touchline in the 81st minute.

But Arges chief Sandoi had other ideas as he cheekily dangled out a leg and sent the speedster tumbling.

The linesman quickly alerted the ref who wasted no time in sending the pitch invader to the stands.

But Sandoi stuck around for a while trying to plead his innocence.

He is likely to be disciplined by the Romanian FA, meaning his players will have to do their own defending next time.

 The incident occurred with the scores level at 1-1

Arges are just two points behind Targoviste in the Liga 2 table.

The gap could have been wider after they fell behind to Christian Cherchez's strike but Vasile Buhaescu levelled 10 minutes before his boss was sent packing.
