Costa Rica head coach and former MLS forward Paulo Wanchope resigns after getting into fight

It hasn't been a good couple months for the Costa Rican national team.

After getting bounced by Mexico in the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals, the head coach of the team now finds himself in hot water (UPDATE: Wanchope has resigned on Wednesday afternoon).

At an Olympic qualifying match in Panama City, Panama, Paulo Wanchope got into a fight with a fan after appearing to get into a verbal altercation with someone on the sidelines.

The match ended in a scoreless draw between Panama and Costa Rica, but the true fireworks came across the white lines.

Wanchope scored 45 goals in his international career with the Ticos and made 12 appearances with the Chicago Fire in 2007.
