Tigres manager has furious meltdown after Liga MX playoff elimination

May 15, 2016


The man you see in the video above shouting like a lunatic and storming out of his own press conference is Tigres manager Tuca Ferretti. He was freaking out because he likes to let female journalists ask questions first, but a male journalist spoke out of turn. But the root of his anger was the manner in which his team was eliminated from the Liga MX quarterfinals.

Monterrey beat Tigres 3–1 in the first leg, but Tigres fought back and scored two away goals in the first 30 minutes of the second leg. With the aggregate score even at 3–3, Tigres defender Juninho was shown a second yellow card and sent off in the 68th minute.


Ferretti thought this was a harsh — or maybe even corrupt — decision, so he waved his wallet at the referee before getting sent off himself.

Just two minutes later, Monterrey scored and went on to advance to the semifinals on a 4–3 aggregate score. So when Ferretti sat down for his press conference, he was already furious. And when a journalist disobeyed his rules, he snapped.

Ferretti did return after taking a few minutes to cool down, but at that point he had already made himself clear. Don’t mess with Tuca.
