Raymond Domenech Shake Hand Video

French coach Raymond Domenech had anything but a pleasant World Cup. He was criticized by soccer legend Zinedine Zidane early on. He argued with his star striker during a crushing loss to Mexico, and the fiery coach sent his adversary home following the dispute.

Things only got worse from there. The France World Cup team refused to practice in protest of their teammate's dismissal, and the squad ultimately lost their final match to an underwhelming South African team.

How did Domenech handle the news? By refusing to shake his opposing coach's hand. When South Africa's coach, Carlos Alberto Parreira, approached the French leader, Domenech waved his finger and engaged in what can only be described as bizarre behavior. Scroll down for video.
