Erling Haaland Shirt Swap: Young Boys Manager Raphael Wicky To ‘Have A Word’ With Captain Mohamed Ali Camara

Erling Haaland Shirt Swap

Young Boys captain Mohamed Ali Camara‘s mid-match shirt swap with Manchester City‘s Erling Haaland has raised eyebrows, with manager Raphael Wicky promising to have a “word” with his skipper.

Down 2-0 at half-time in a Champions League Group G clash, Camara approached Haaland and requested his jersey, a move that didn’t sit well with Wicky.

“I didn’t see that, that’s news to me,” Wicky revealed after the match. “I’m a little bit surprised about that right now.”

“On the other hand, I don’t think it has anything to do with the game, but I’ll have a word with him. Maybe Erling asked him.”

“At the end of the day, I don’t think this has anything to do with the performance, but I will have a word with the player.”

Meanwhile, pundits weighed in on the incident, with Ally McCoist labeling it “embarrassing” during his commentary for TNT Sports.

“100% not having it,” McCoist declared. “That’s embarrassing. Not having that at all.”

However, McCoist’s tone changed when Haaland scored his second goal of the game, a thunderous effort from outside the box.

“You should ask him for his jersey after that one to be fair,” McCoist joked.

City manager Pep Guardiola, perhaps less bothered by the incident given his side’s comfortable victory, downplayed the significance of the shirt swap.

“It’s not a big subject for me,” Guardiola said.

Haaland, who has now scored four goals in four Champions League matches this season, remained unfazed by the fuss.

“It’s a normal thing to do,” Haaland commented. “I’ve swapped shirts with many players before.”
