Danish coach fired day after hitting reporter

A Danish soccer coach was fired one day after he angrily hit a
TV interviewer on the shoulder following a 4-0 loss.

The coach of the Randers team Ove Christensen became agitated
when asked after the match against Brondby whether he could stay on
as coach. He responded by saying he would not answer ”stupid
questions.” He then hit reporter Rasmus Lund on the right shoulder
and walked away.

Randers spokesman Ib Rasmussen told The Associated Press on
Tuesday that Christensen’s dismissal was not related but was a
result of the club’s ”poor result.”

Christensen joined the team in 2009. It is 10th in the 12-team
Danish league.
