Football coach reportedly punches journalist at airport

The Gold Cup is over, but it appears the drama didn't quite end with Mexico's triumph over Jamaica on Sunday night.

Mexico head coach Miguel Herrera reportedly punched Christian Martinoli of TV Azteca at the Philadelphia airport on Monday – one day after Mexco clinched the Gold Cup with a 3-1 win over the Reggae Boyz.

Martinoli, who has been critical of Herrera during El Tri's Gold Cup run, told AS Mexico that he ran into the Mexico national team when he got past security at the airport. There, Herrera punched him in the neck, then challenged him to a fight outside.

Another source confirmed the events to AS Mexico, saying Herrera told Martinoli they should leave the terminal and head to the streeet to "fix this like it should be fixed."

El Tri won their 10th CONCACAF title.
