As awkward as this story sounds, it is for real!
The coach of a Spanish youth team, Serranos B, has been sacked after a 25-0 win over Valencia youth side because the club’s management decided the margin of victory went against the spirit of the game.
“We believe in encouraging respect for your opponents. After the result, we decided that the manager should leave,” Pablo Alcaide, who helps run the side said.
The game was Benicalap C’s final match of the season. They finished bottom of the league with zero points and 247 goals conceded from their 30 matches.
What a whooping amount of goals!
