Red Bull Leipzig manager injures hamstring celebrating promotion

Monday May 9th, 2016

Red Bull Leipzig celebrated securing promotion to the Bundesliga over the weekend, but not everyone emerged from its party unscathed.

Manager Ralf Rangnick injured his hamstring trying to escape a player attempting to shower him with beer following Red Bull Leipzig's 2-0 win over Karlsruhe that cemented the club's place in the top flight. 

Making matters worse for Rangnick, he couldn't escape the shower from Davie Selke. 

“He definitely tried to run from me, which isn’t a good idea–I caught him up, I won the race. Then something happened, he probably didn’t warm up enough!” Selke said, according to The Guardian.


Red Bull Leipzig is the club of American forward Terrence Boyd, who missed the season with a knee injury.
