Stray dog becomes ‘assistant coach’

A football team in Paraguay has welcomed a stray dog as an ‘assistant coach’ to head coach Carlos Jara Saguier.

The Sporting Club 2 de Mayo head coach  has been photographed with his ‘assistant coach’ during training sessions and post-match interviews.

“I gave him a piece of pie [empanada] and from that day on, every time I came to work, he greeted me. He no longer ran away from me. Now he threatens our opponents with a grunt.” the manager was quoted as saying by Sportbible.

“The dog lives in the clubhouse, he never gets away from me and when I close the doors to go home and he stays there, he gets a bit annoyed.

“But by day he’s so friendly and everyone loves it.”
