Sanfrecce Hiroshima: masters of the trick penalty


Sanfrecce Hiroshima: masters of the trick penalty.
Is there a better coach in the world than Mihailo Petrovic?

Many would argue that Jose Mourinho stands on the edge of greatness after steering Inter to a UEFA Champions League final against Bayern Munich on May 22.

But he's never coached his players to take penalties like this!

It's not the first time Sanfrecce have dabbled in trick penalties this season, but the first resulted in referee Takuto Okabe earning a two-match suspension for incorrectly allowing Hisato Sato's opener from twelve yards in their 1-1 J. League draw at home to Shimizu S-Pulse.

With Sanfrecce Hiroshima locked at 3-3 against defending Asian champions Pohang Steelers in their AFC Champions League clash at Big Arch Stadium, striker Hisato Sato casually PASSED the ball from the penalty spot to team-mate Tomoaki Makino, who dutifully slammed home!
