An Egyptian Premier League game between Ghazl El-Mahalla and Al Ahly seemed normal enough on the surface of things but, on closer inspection, the goalkeeper shirt worn by El-Mahalla No. 1 Mahdi Soliman looked a bit dodgy.
That’s because it turns out Soliman was actually wearing a Liverpool kit!
Local reports claim El-Mahalla’s kit man forgot to bring a goalkeeper’s jersey to the match and had to scarper to a local sports store to locate a suitable replacement.
Liverpool’s team crest, kit manufacturer and part of their Standard Charter sponsor logo was still visible though.
At least the El-Mahalla kit man didn’t buy the Premier League arm badges…
