VIDEO: Trabzonspor’s Badou Ndiaye eats tactics note after reading it

Shows initiative to hide instructions from opponents.


Trabzonspor midfielder Badou Ndiaye ate a tactics note after reading it during Saturday’s 1-1 Turkish Süper Lig draw at Gaziantep.

The Senegal international, on loan from Stoke, received some written instructions from his manager Hüseyin Çimşir mid-game at the New Gaziantep Stadium.

To keep it from prying opposition eyes, Ndiaye took the novel step of consuming the slip of paper once he’d taken on board the message it carried.

Caleb Ekuban gave Trabzonspor a first half lead as they looked to close in on league leaders İstanbul Başakşehir, with Olarenwaju Kayode equalising in the second period for the hosts.
