Dutch soccer manager punches a hole through his dugout

New, comment

NAC Breda had a bad day against Dordrecht in the Eredivisie, and manager Robert Maaskant took out his frustration on his poor dugout's wall.

The Eredivisie season is running toward a chaotic finish at the bottom of the table, with four teams within six points of the last relegation playoff spot in 16th place in the Dutch top division's table. NAC Breda are currently the team sitting in that position, though as they were just two points behind Heracles, they were hoping the 2-0 halftime lead they had over last-place Dordrecht would be enough to climb out of their hole.

Then they threw that lead away in just three minutes, giving up two cheap goals to the side that's scored the fewest in the Eredvisie, a league famous for it's free-scoring ways. That left manager Robert Masskant a little bit frustration, and their dugout paid the price when he put his fist through the side wall of the structure.

The dugout at least got a little bit of revenge, since it looks like he cut his hand on the broken plastic.
