Violence could be getting another CONCACAF coach in hot water.
Costa Rica coach Paulo Wanchope was caught on video getting in a fight with a man during an Under-23 match Tuesday in Panama, two weeks after Mexico boss Miguel Herrera was fired because of allegations that he punched a reporter in Philadelphia.
The video shows Wanchope observing the match from the stands when another man appears to shove him in the back — prompting the Costa Rica coach to lash out and engage in a brief scuffle before security intervenes. The footage also shows Wanchope pushing a ball boy, though the 39-year-old appeared to simply be losing his balance after initially being shoved.
Wanchope was attending a match between Costa Rica and Panama in the Central American phase of CONCACAF Olympic qualifying.
