Gladbach’s Lars Stindl certainly didn’t mean to leave this young boy looking for a handshake hanging on Wednesday, but he did. The inadvertent snub made waves around the internet, and it’s easy to see why. Here’s the exchange:
The highlight of #HSVBMG so far – that poor kid 😰 We'll give you a handshake at least! 🤝
The poor kid. Not only does he have to sit there looking like a bobblehead with a camera on his hat, but he can’t even get dapped up by any of the grown-ups. It wasn’t for lack of trying, either. He stuck his tiny paw out there several times to no avail. Eventually, he resigned himself to being ignored.
The good news is that there’s a happy ending for the young lad. Gladbach and Stindl pulled some strings to give the kid his very own kit from the 28-year-old midfielder.
