During an Argentine Primera División clash with All Boys on Wednesday, Pellegrino was ordering his players from the sidelines, and used some arm signals to make sure the message got across.

However, moments after he began, the 41-year-old was forced to stop and retreat to the bench after his shoulder popped out of its socket.

"I have never seen a coach pick up an injury before," Pellegrino told Argentine newspaper Olé.

"I have a chronic injury to my shoulder, and it came out of place."

Estudiantes won the match 1-0 to claim their first win of the season - and, of course, relieve Pellegrino's excruciating pain.
