Velez Sarsfield coach Omar De Felippe has resigned after being spat on by a fan of the Superliga Argentina side.
De Felippe has decided to step down after 31 games in charge of Velez following his side's 2-0 league defeat at home to second-placed Union de Santa Fe on Monday.
"I'm leaving because of what happened on the pitch," De Felippe said in his postmatch news conference. "A fan spat at me. I can't stand that. I can't put up with a stupid person spitting at me. Better to leave now."
