Only One Player Didn't Join PSG Players In Mocking Erling Haaland

Only One Player Didn't Join PSG Players In Mocking Erling Haaland

While the majority of PSG's squad enjoyed mocking Erling Haaland's celebration on Wednesday, striker Edinson Cavani was nowhere to be seen.

Neymar mimicked the Norwegian boy-wonder's trademark celebration after opening the scoring in the 2-0 Champions League round of 16 second leg victory over Borussia Dortmund at an empty Parc des Princes.

If that wasn't enough, there was a post-match squad picture doing the Haaland pose before Kylian Mbappe posted a video of he and other teammates continuing the mimicking in the dressing room.

But in both instances, Cavani was not present.

According to Ovacion, the former Napoli striker questioned Neymar's decision to celebrate in that way and he also outright refused to join in any of the dressing room shenanigans - as can be seen in the above video posted by Mbappe.

After the game, Neymar posted a picture of him doing imitating Haaland with the caption, "Paris is our city, not yours,".

The Brazilian was responded to a Haaland Snapchat post that turned out to be fake and not something sent by the player.

Haaland's 'Zen' celebration has become a huge hit and the former Red Bull Salzburg man recently explained just why he celebrates his goals in such a manner.

"I really enjoy meditation," Haaland told Esporte Interativo in a recent interview.

"It makes feel calm and gives me tranquillity. This is why I sometimes celebrate like that when I score."
