Romanian club FC Poli Lasi bizarrely took mind games to the next level as all the ball boys in the home stadium were made to wear to Celtic shirts (see tweet below) to remind their opponents on the evening CFR Cluj of their 2-0 defeat against Celtic in the Europa league three weeks ago.
Celtic dominated CFR Cluj when the clubs met on 3rd october with Mohamed Elyounoussi and Odsonne Edouard getting the goals and now Poli Lasi wanted to reopen old wounds with this latest stunt.
The mind games might have worked as Poli Lasi ran out 2-1 winners aga inst CFR Cluj.
Cluj still sit on top of the league but other clubs may employ the same tactic to distract Cluj in order to win.
Some fans were quick to point out that there could be a possibility that the ball boys wearing Celtic shirts was just a coincidence and that Poli Lasi use the shirts in training which were then given to the ball boys.
Other fans saw the funny side and thought it was a brilliant idea to distract the opposition in order to win the game.
Trolling level 100 was reached in Romania. All the ball boys at Poli Iasi – CFR wore Celtic Glasgow shirts to remind CFR’s players of their defeat at Celtic Park 3 weeks ago. The mind games worked, as CFR lost 2-1. pic.twitter.com/pgIVFCmUay— Emanuel Roşu (@Emishor) October 28, 2019
