Feyenoord striker Graziano Pelle throws temper tantrum after FC Twente draw

Feyenoord now find themselves nine points behind Eredivisie leaders Ajax after being held to a 2-2 draw at fellow title-chasers FC Twente on Sunday. A dramatic 96th-minute equalizer from Twente defender Cuco Martina denied the visitors maximum points, and this did not sit very well with Feyenoord striker Graziano Pelle.

While his teammates shook hands and quietly contemplated their disappointment, the Italian striker stormed off the field, kicking the dugout on his way. The 28-year-old, who scored the opening goal, then booted a chunk out of a door inside the tunnel before giving a camera stand and some lighting the kicking of a lifetime.

It's great that Pelle is passionate about his team, but his lack of class might lead to a fine and suspension. Seeing as Ajax are paying them a visit next week, the timing of his furious inanimate object kicking could have been better.
