Domenech reportedly played Wii – strictly in the interests of his players, you understand – and picked up a nasty little injury.
He said: “It is a physical exercise. It is [what caused] my tendinitis because I played a boxing match. I could not move my shoulder for two days.” After discovering just how dangerous playing Wii could be, the French coach decided he couldn’t risk losing Grégory Coupet to a shoulder injury during Euro 2008 and took decisive action.
