Bizarre creatures

FORGET about the France team's brawl with their coach, strange national anthems and grumpy English fans, entertainment can be found in a lot of strange coaches.

FORGET about the France team's brawl with their coach, strange national anthems and grumpy English fans, entertainment can be found in a lot of strange coaches.

International soccer coaches tend to look like they should be held in Sterkfontein or someplace. Their evil looks, scary eyes, bizarre haircuts and rude demeanor keep us glued to our screens. Let's take a look at these weird and wonderful creatures:

Diego Maradona (Argentina)

Maradona is probably the most famous and interesting 2010 World Cup coach.

He comes on to the field dressed to the nines in his designer suits two numberss bigger than his size.

This short man accessorises with diamond studs as big as mints gleaming in each ear and he wears Hublot watches on both wrists and a gold chain.

Wouldn't he be able to move, jump, gesture and dance better if he were wearing his usual tracksuits? Just asking.

Carlos Alberto Parreira (South Africa)

Forget the lisp and his massacre of the queen's lingo, no one carries tracksuits like our Carlos Alberto Parreira. He looks like a cute little boy in Bafana colours.

Pim Verbeek (Australia)

I don't know about you, but I think there is something very worrying about the name Pim.

This Dutchman has that silly grin and is always whining, which makes him look like a desperate tyrant about to appear in The Hague for crimes against humanity.

Matjaz Kek (Slovenia)

He also has a strange name and looks like he should be an opposition leader in a communist republic.

Dunga (Brazil)

Known for being a tough coach. This chap uses just one name and he has an annoying habit of sticking his tongue out. Now that's sickening.

Bob Bradley (US)

He is the boniest and scariest coach in the 2010 World Cup. His eyes are icy and look as though he is a frustrated US troop commander waiting to go to Afghanistan.

Kim Jong-Hun (North Korea)

All I can say is that Jong-Hun looks like he is half brother to the president of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Fabio Capello (England)

Ignore the receding hairline and the ugly spectacles and the Italian is immaculate. He always wears tailored designer suits on the touchline and is incredibly well-groomed.

Lars Lagerback (Nigeria)

Though the Super Eagles lack genuine power to fly in this World Cup, their coach doesn't look bad in a tracksuit.
