Dutch manager completely loses the rag and smashes a hole in the dug-out with his fist

Robert Maaskant was left with a bloody hand after his side conceded twice in two minutes.

IF YOU THINK Tim Sherwood is the most animated manager around, think again.

In the Eridivisie, third-bottom NAC Breda spurned a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with basement boys Dordrecht yesterday. NAC appeared set to move out of the relegation play-off places thanks to a first-half brace from midfielder Adnane Tighadouini.

But Dordrecht scored twice in the space of three minutes as Giovanni Korte headed in a corner and Everon Pisas took advantage of some haphazard defending to smash a 69th-minute equaliser.

The draw means they lie seven points adrift and manager Robert Maaskant took his frustration out on the dug-out before pouring water over his bloodied knuckles.
