WATCH: Soccer coach pulls hamstring after celebrating game-winning goal

There's nothing like getting a late game-winning goal, and that's exactly what Valencia did against Real Sociedad on Sunday in La Liga play. Simone Zaza scored five minutes from the final whistle to give the team a 3-2 victory. 

The entire team, as expected, celebrated the late goal, but coach Marcelino appeared to have celebrated a bit too much. The Spanish manager was so thrilled, he jumped up and down and ended up pulling his hamstring. Here he is trying to make his way back to the bench:

And he was in quite a bit of pain on the bench. He spoke after the match on beIN Sports, confirming the hamstring injury and laughing it off. 

The victory should ease the pain, but here's betting next time he celebrates a bit lighter or does some stretching before the match.
