Japan coach Ivica Osim had his interpreter crying like a baby as he delivered a post-match rollicking following a 1-1 draw with Qatar in their Asian Cup opener. Celtic midfielder Shunsuka Nakamura revealed that Osim was not best pleased after his side conceded a late equaliser.
Nakamura said: ” Osim was in a rage. He said he was a professional and prepared to put his life on the line and that we should do the same. He called us amateurs. His interpreter was in tears and couldn’t translate most of it.” [Via Reuters] Highlights of the game below.
