FC Dallas coach hands Portland Timbers’ coach a tissue instead of shaking hands
Portland handed FC Dallas its first loss of the season Saturday night, and FC Dallas coach Oscar Pareja handed Portland coach Caleb Porter a tissue.
Yes, a tissue.
“I walked over to shake his hand and he had a tissue that he put over his nose and tried to hand me a tissue,” Porter said in the postgame press conference. “So I thought it was very poor sportsmanship out of him [Pareja]. I never said one word to him the whole game and he obviously wasn’t happy with the loss.
“But I’ve never had a coach come up and disrespect me like that. So that’s what happened.”
Maybe he walked up to Pareja after the win with a little too much boogie in his step.
