Real Sociedad were fifth in the Segunda Division and unbeaten in 11 games when Chris Coleman walked after sharing a "different vision" with the owners. The relationship had reportedly become strained after Coleman turned up an hour and a half late for a press conference and blamed it on his flat being flooded by the washing machine. The excuse didn't wash with the club and Spanish journalists claimed Coleman had been out partying until 5am that morning. They were right. Coleman came clean not long after and apologised.
