Video: Lyon’s Bafetimbi Gomis celebrates Europa League goal with a dummy
There was no shortage of clubs naming some very young players in the starting line-ups for last night’s round of Europa League games, but Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis took it too far.
The France international whipped a baby’s dummy – as in a dummy that would ordinarily be used by a baby (we’re not suggesting he stole it from a specific baby) – out of his shorts after finding the net in his side’s 2-1 victory over Sparta Prague.
Now, before we go any further, there are not too many places you can store something in a pair of football shorts… which does cast a bit of a shadow over Gomis’ celebration.
And the referee wasn’t keen on it either. He gave him Gomis yellow card.
