Inter Milan's Xherdan Shaqiri dresses as old man, surprises young players on pitch
Sunday June 28th, 2015

From the “if something feels off, it probably is off” files: Swiss star Xherdan Shaqiri recently pranked a youth team into thinking he was an elderly soccer legend looking to relive his playing days before yanking off his wig to teach the kids a thing or two.

The Inter Milan winger visited the SC Kriens youth team to pull the stunt, and he pulled out all the stops in doing so. We’re talking a full makeup team working on his disguise, the youth team coach telling the whole team about this dude’s desire to get back on the field and what seems like a solid portion of the practice spent with Shaqiri just hanging around asking if the kids are tired yet.

Yes, this was a pretty solid addition to the genre popularized by Kyrie Irving‘s “Uncle Drew” videos.
