- He fell over after being brushed by Borussia Monchengladbach defender.
Red-faced Bayer Leverkusen boss Heiko Herrlich is facing a touchline ban – for diving!
The embarrassing slip-up occurred during the DFB Cup clash at Borussia Monchengladbach.
With 75 minutes left in the game and Leverkusen winning 1-0, Monchengladbach defender Denis Zakaria ran to collect the ball as it ran out of play.
Blocking his path was Herrlich, who allowed the ball to run through his legs. Trying to get by, Zakaria brushed past the Leverkusen coach with the faintest of touches.
As you can see from the footage, Herrlich, 46, threw himself to the floor to start a mass shoving match.
Herrlich claimed afterwards that he slipped. He also admitted being embarrassed.
So he should be!!!
