We’ve all seen that player power has become too strong in recent years and most clubs are powerless to stop a transfer once a player decides to move on, but this is some next level stuff from Didier Lamkel Ze.
The Antwerp striker is reportedly keen to move to Greek giants Panathinaikos but the transfer isn’t going smoothly, so he decided to turn up to training in an Anderlecht top in protest:

For those not familiar with Beligan football this is the equivalent of a Celtic player turning up in a Rangers shirt, a Real Madrid player turning up in a Barca top or even a Chicago Bears star donning the colours of Green Bay as they turn up for training.
Obviously it’s not gone down well and he wasn’t allowed to enter, so surely Antwerp will want to move him on now.
