Sivasspor manager Sergen Yalçın is renowned for making controversial statements and his latest rant claiming that coaching a club like Barcelona is easy has caused a social media frenzy.
“Being a manager at Barcelona is easy, if I was in charge of the team I would spark a cigarrette, kick back and relax in the dugout,” Yalçın told Sabah newspaper.
The former Turkish international claimed that coaching weaker sides is a lot more difficult than teams like Barcelona.
The 42-year-old coach also said he would break the hands of any player that tried to complain about being substituted off.
“If they tried to make a silly hand sign to me after getting taken off I would break those hands,” he added.
Yalçın is a former Turkish international with limited coaching experience. The former Beşiktaş star managed Gaziantepspor for a brief spell last season.
Sivasspor were in the relegation zone when Yalçın took over in December but the central Anatolian based side are now 10 points clear of the drop zone.
