Flamengo manager Jorge Jesus tried and failed to shoo an iguana off his side’s training pitch on Tuesday.

The former Benfica and Sporting Lisbon boss attempted to wave away the cold-blooded reptile so he could put his players through their paces.

However, he was met with stony indifference from the lizard, who refused to budge and perhaps didn’t even notice Jesus altogether.

Rio de Janeiro-based Flamengo are currently the reigning champions of Brazil’s top flight league.
