Costa Rica Coach Paulo Wanchope Brawls With Tiny Security Guard

If you ever get in a fight, it’s probably in your best interest to never underestimate your adversary — even if it’s someone half your size. Just ask Costa Rica coach Paulo Wanchope, who got his ass beaten by a miniature security guard Tuesday night.

Wanchope was watching his U-23 squad play a qualifier match against Panama when he attempted get out onto the field to argue with an official. As you can see below, once Wanchope gets the gate open, he appears to get shoved before turning around to slap the guy in the face. Unfortunately, that was the lone shot Wanchope got in because that little man went off on him.
