Footage has emerged of Koln gaffer Steffen Baumgart managing from his living room in their clash with SC Freiburg.
Baumgart was unable to be at the stadium after he tested positive for Covid, but because he wasn’t at the game doesn’t mean he was able to sit and enjoy.
In a TikTok video uploaded by his daughter, Baumgart is seen screaming at his TV as he jumps up and down off the sofa.
Baumgart does all of this in front of his family – who sit unfazed by his actions.
And his actions may just have worked as Köln claimed a 1-0 win.
One viewer commented: “Favourite moment? The way Steffen Baumgart’s dog provides emotional support whilst he’s shouting at his TV.”
“Let’s not skip over the fact that he keeps his cap on even when watching the game at home,” another added.
A third said: “This is absolutely brilliant. I’m feeling sorry for the dog.”

Gary Lineker said: “The dog is like the 4th official trying to calm him down.”
Anthony Modeste was the only man on the score sheet when he found the net in the 23rd minute of the clash.
Freiburg thought they had equalled the clash when Christian Streich found the net, but it was ruled out for VAR.
