Frankie Gets Slapped

Sven can't control his team or his coaches.

Sven can't control his team or his coaches.

Wednesday’s USA vs. Mexico World Cup qualifier was hotly contested both on and off the pitch. After the match as both teams were walking down the tunnel, Mexico assistant coach Jesus Ramirez stops to give American defender Frankie Hejduk something more than a love tap. Yesterday, Hejduk had this to say about the incident. “I had no idea who the guy was. He stepped in front of me and started speaking Spanish. I had no idea what he was saying. . . . The only thing I can think of is that after our second goal (in the 92nd minute), I was running down the sideline saying, ‘(Expletive) yeah,’ pumping up the crowd like I always do. And I think maybe they interpreted it as saying, ‘(Expletive) you,’ and that wasn’t the case at all. The guy, I guess, took it personally.”
