With all eyes still very much on the 2019 summer pre-season tour, it’s easy to forget that things are happening outside of the pitch as well.
One such thing was Reiss Nelson posting a promotional video with Adidas on Instagram, showing off his new Predator blades to the public.
The video itself was brilliant and it sure served the purpose to hype up both the player and Adidas’ new merchandise, but as much as Nelson looked cool and composed, his friends couldn’t resist the opportunity to rinse him.
Indeed, the majority of replies were jokes aimed at Nelson as he was rinsed without mercy.
Ryan Sessegnon was “dying with laughter” while Tafari Moore stated he was “cracking up”.
And they were also not the only ones turning his promotional video into a practical joke.
But of course, it has to be noted that this is just friendly banter among teammates and peers.
We’re just not convinced Nelson enjoyed it as much as everyone else seemed to.
