Watch: Italy manager Antonio Conte angrily boots daylights out of ball

Monday June 27th, 2016

Italy manager Antonio Conte was pretty angry during the nation’s match against Spain at the 2016 Euros after a call didn’t go the team’s way.

How angry? Well, he kicked the bejesus out of a soccer ball that was rolling toward the sideline. He didn’t even do the two teams a favor and kick it back onto the pitch, or across it—he just let it rip right down the sideline and out of play.

It’s pretty fun to watch someone in a full suit kick a ball that hard, especially when they’re yelling like Conte was.


Get outta here, soccer ball. You’re today’s loser.
