(Watch Video Clips) Football coach shot as violence ensues during match, players and match officials flee pitch to hide behind walls

An Argentine football coach was shot in the shoulder and players fled the pitch on Sunday as Huracan Las Heras fans fought among themselves during a third-tier match in Mendoza province.

Videos showed players from Huracan and opponents Ferro de General Pico running for cover and fans hiding behind walls as shots rang out at the ground.

Sports newspaper Ole said Ferro coach Mauricio Romero received a gunshot wound to the shoulder as organised fans groups linked to Huracan fought among themselves.

A video showed Romero being treated for a wound to his shoulder, with the club later saying he had gone to hospital.

“Romero is doing well and out of danger,” Ferro tweeted. “After leaving the stadium he underwent tests in a local hospital and is now giving a statement to police.”

Huracan said the fighting was “ruining” the club.

“For years families have been chased from grounds,” the club said in a Facebook post. “May all those that harm the club stay away so that the real fans can return.”

The match in the Federal A league was suspended late in the second half with Huracan leading 3-1.

Antonio Conte arrives in London for Tottenham job

Antonio Conte has arrived in London, where he will sign a contract with Tottenham until June 2023.

The Italian tactician has agreed to take over in North London after Nuno Espirito Santo’s sacking.

He had rejected a move to Spurs in the summer, but he has now been convinced by their transfer strategy for the January window.

Spurs are planning to invest big when the market re-opens at the beginning of the new year, so Conte is keen to move to North London.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Conte has just landed in London to meet the club’s directors.

There are no doubts about the fact that Conte will become the new Tottenham boss, although he still needs to fix a few details with the Premier League giants.

Conte left Inter in the summer after winning the title with the Nerazzurri, the first one in 11 years for the club.

He had been linked with the Manchester United job, but the Red Devils decided against sacking Ole Gunnar Solskaer, paving the way for Conte’s agreement with Spurs.

(Watch Highlights) Ibrahimovic on fire for AC Milan as Jose Mourinho suffers first home defeat (Match Report)

Zlatan Ibrahimovic blasted in a free kick and earned a penalty, as Milan held on after the Theo Hernandez red card to win 2-1 away to Roma, Jose Mourinho’s first ever Serie A home defeat.

Lorenzo Pellegrini drilled wide from eight yards on a Matias Vina pull-back in the opening minutes, while Rafael Leao shinned a Davide Calabria cross over.

It was end-to-end stuff, Pellegrini firing wide after a chaotic move and Zlatan Ibrahimovic over from a tricky angle.

The deadlock was broken when Ibrahimovic smashed a ferocious free kick through the wall into the far bottom corner, despite there being a player lying down behind it. That was his 400th goal in domestic league competitions.

Rafael Leao had a shot charged down, then Ibrahimovic also chested down the ball for Rafael Leao to flick it over Rui Patricio and nod into an empty net, but it was disallowed for the Swede’s offside position.

Pellegrini’s free kick took a deflection to flash all the way across the face of goal, nobody getting the final touch, while Rui Patricio plucked a Theo Hernandez set play out of the air.

Ibrahimovic had the ball in the net again on 50 minutes when chesting down a ball over the top, letting it bounce and firing in with his right foot, but was marginally offside.

It was end-to-end stuff, as Abraham had a shot charged down by Simon Kjaer, Milan immediately went on the counter with Ibrahimovic brought down by Roger Ibanez. The defender got a bit of the ball, but arguably only after he went through the Swede’s ankle, which is the conclusion the referee also reached after viewing it on the VAR monitor. Franck Kessie sent Rui Patricio the wrong way to convert and double the Rossoneri’s lead.

However, just as the Rossoneri were looking comfortable, Theo Hernandez received his second yellow card for flinging himself in the path of Pellegrini just outside the box. That reduced Milan to 10 men and means he’ll be suspended against Inter.

Pellegrini’s free kick flashed inches past the far post and Zaniolo’s head and Roma began to pin the visitors back, Simon Kjaer practically clearing a Zaniolo header off the line after a well-worked free kick routine.

Tatarusanu had his gloves stung by an absolute rocket from Gianluca Mancini, but in stoppages Roma did get one back, as Stephan El Shaarawy gathered a poor clearance and smashed it into the roof of the net from 12 yards.

It still wasn’t over, a late siege seeing Tatarusanu at full stretch to palm away the Carles Perez strike and more penalty appeals for Kjaer’s challenge on Pellegrini.
