Dirty Tackle

Atletico Madrid beat Rayo Vallecano 1-0 on Sunday, but Rayo manager Jose Ramon Sandoval didn't go down with out a (strange) fight.

In the 87th minute, with Atletico leading thanks to a Falcao goal, Diego tried to take a quick throw in after the ball went out near the Rayo bench. Well, Sandoval didn't like this and decided to try and block Diego's throw, but the 43-year-old didn't have the hops to get the job done and the throw found its target.

After the match, Sandoval apologized to Diego and the referee, claiming that he acted "by instinct" and admitted that what he did was wrong. He also said his move was a nod to Michael Jordan, but that's an insult to Michael Jordan.
