Temuri Ketsbaia[edit | edit source]
Temuri Ketsbaia (born March 18, 1968 in Gali) is a shiny-headed rageaholic credited with inventing the modern angry celebration.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
For some incomprehensible reason, Ketsbaia saw every goal he scored as a terrible affront to himself and his family.
The Georgian midfielder made his name in Britain when he celebrated a goal for Newcastle United against Bolton by kicking the shit out of St James’ Park.
After the game, Ketsbaia’s unusual celebrations escalated when he dumped his car in the River Tyne and burned down a hospital.
Coaching career[edit | edit source]
Ketsbaia was somewhat surprisingly appointed manager of regularly mispronounced Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta.
However, the young tactician’s temper continued to surface whenever his players found the net.
In an 6-1 win over APEP Pitsilia, Ketsbaia single-handedly demolished the West Stand at the GSE and Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium before raising a nearby housing estate to the ground.
Temuri’s baffled players weren’t spared from his bizarre celebrations and Brazilian midfielder Savio spent a month in hospital as Ketsbaia celebrated his neatly worked corner routine by beating him with a flagpole.
The terms of Ketsbaia’s new contract with Anorthosis state that he must watch all games in a protective rubber room.
