Eric Choupo-Moting. The one who not only got away after relegation, for Stoke fans, but could not do so quickly enough.
Not to mention he somehow landed on his feet at Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.
So, perhaps, Potters fans will feel some amount of vindication that the versatile forward cost the Parisian side an early league title celebration.
After the forward opened the scoring early on, they were pegged back on terms when Nuno Da Costa slid the ball into the net from a cut back.
After Christopher Nkunku delightfully lobbed the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper (roughly 21 seconds into the video), it seemed he was destined to score.
With the ball trickling over the line, the Cameroon international stuck out a left boot to ensure PSG took the lead.
Have now watched it seventeen times, and still have absolutely no idea what Choupo-Moting was trying or thinking.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has just missed from a distance of literally about one inch.

Only to trip over himself and somehow produce a contender for the world’s best goal-line clearance.
Thilo Kehrer came to the rescue late on for the hosts after a shock defeat was on the cards, but had they won they could have celebrated another Ligue 1 title.
