Watch: Napoli Botch Their Jersey Tribute To Injured Teammate

Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik is clearly will liked by his teammates.

The Polish star injured the ACL in his right knee at the weekend. The injury came a year after he tore the same ligament in his left knee.


Milik was clearly on the mind of Napoli's players before Tuesday night's Champions League game against Feyenoord. Lorenzo Insigne scored the opening goal and ran straight for the home dugout in what was a pre-planned celebration.

Substitute Piotr Zielinski handed the jersey to Insigne to hold up to the camera, but it wasn't Milik's. In the heat of the moment Zielinski accidentally handed his own jersey to his teammate.

Luckily Insigne saw the funny side of it, and got his hands on Milik's jersey at the third time of asking, holding up the 'MILIK 99' for the world to see.

The moral of the story? Never pre-plan your celebrations.
