Shaolin Soccer Subtitle question.

I just watched the Universe DVD of Shaolin Soccer (great film) and there was 1 thing in the subtitling that I could never figure out. Why was the coach (Fung) called "The Lame" by everyone? That was the only thing that really bugged me.

from Dictionary.com:

Disabled so that movement, especially walking, is difficult or impossible: Lame from the accident, he walked with a cane. A lame wing kept the bird from flying.
