Chelsea and Everton target swaps shirt with opponent, then disrespectfully throws it away (Video)

Andriy Yarmolenko seems to be a bit of a sore loser.

The Ukrainian winger, who was a target of Everton and Chelsea before signing a new deal this week, played the full 90 of Dynamo Kiev’s 3-0 home defeat to rivals Shakhtar Donetsk on Friday.

Being Kiev’s superstar, players rushed to exchange jerseys with Yarmolenko and it was Shakhtar defender Taras Stepanenko who got the coveted shirt.

But Yarmolenko clearly wasn’t as bowled over with the trade as he disrespectfully discarded Stepanenko’s jersey before leaving the pitch.

It may not seem like a big deal but we can only imagine Stepanenko’s disappointment to see his shirt laying on the pitch after he had handed it to one of his idols.
