After beating Goias 1-0 in Copa Sudamericana semifinals Wednesday night, Palmeiras manager Phil Scolari was of course happy to stop and do an interview before disappearing into the tunnel. One Goias fan with a very good arm was apparently happy he stopped, too, because it gave him a chance to hit Scolari in the back of the head with a radio as he conducted the interview.
Scolari was naturally surprised and hurt, so he turned around and offered a few choice gestures to the crowd behind him before politely excusing himself from the interview with a bad mood and a headache.
And to think that back in Uzbekistan, he got to go to weddings, wear cool outfits and dance like a king.
