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.
