His team might be top of the league, but not everything has been going according to plan for Marseille manager Marcelo Bielsa.

During his side's Ligue 1 match against Toulouse, the Argentinian tactician saw his team win 2-0.

It was their eighth win of the season and a result that sees them sitting pretty at the top of Ligue 1, seven points ahead of mega-rich Paris St Germain despite the capital club remaining undefeated this season.

Yet during the win, Bielsa unleashed his fury at his coaching staff after unwittingly sitting on a hot cup of coffee.

One of Bielsa's team is pictured placing the cup on top of an ice-box on the touchline. Moments later, the Marseille manager takes a seat upon it, and the coffee.

It must have only taken seconds for the warm beverage to seep through his tracksuit bottoms as the 59-year-old leaps up before scolding his bench and kicking the cup in anger.

 

 

Marseille play PSG early next month.
