By all accounts Rayo Vallecano coach Jose Ramon Sandoval is a bit of a nutter.
You would have to be to coach a team with minimal resources in La Liga and Sandoval is even being sued by his own employers.
On Sunday night Rayo Vallecano went down to a 1-0 home defeat to Atletico Madrid and Sandoval attracted attention late on in the game as he acrobatically stopped Diego from taking a quick throw for the opposition.
Somehow, Sandoval got away with just a word from the referee. It’s difficult to see Sir Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger pulling something like this off!
