VIDEO: Rio Ave’s Fábio Coentrão pulls down Andreas Samaris’s shorts after Benfica player refuses to help him up

Petulant yank bares briefs.



Rio Ave defender Fábio Coentrão pulled down Andreas Samaris’s shorts after the Benfica player refused to help him up during Sunday’s Primeira Liga match.

His side were already losing by a two-goal margin when the incident happened at the Estádio dos Arcos, which might help explain his petulance.


Coentrão, a former Benfica player, went down on the turf and held his hand out to Samaris asking for a helping hand to return to his feet.

When Samaris refused, Coentrão yanked his shorts down before trotting off to greet André Almeida.

Benfica emerged as 3-2 winners to go into the final day of the season two points ahead of Porto at the top of the Portuguese top flight.
