When the wheels really come off for a coach...

Belenenses manager Quim Machado might have expected a little more gratitude after guiding his side to victory over Rio Ave in the Portuguese Primeira Liga last weekend.

On returning to his car after the match, Machado found that thieves had stolen all the wheels from his Mercedes.

Belenenses are currently 12th in the 18-team Primeira Liga with five wins from 17 games. Rio Ave are eighth, with seven victories.
