This isn’t the first time we’ve seen something like this happen.
At the end of 2011 Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marco Reus and Mike Hanke adopted the classic school-yard game Rock, Paper, Scissors to decide who takes a free kick during their Bundesliga win against Cologne.
On Saturday in Germany we saw the use of the game once more during Bayern Munich’s 6-0 hammering of Hertha Berlin.
Whether disrespectful or not to sorry Hertha, Bayern duo Franck Ribery and Toni Kroos showed little regard for their opponents as the twosome faced a free-kick just outside the Berlin box. Unable to decide which player should take the set-play, a game of Schnick, Schnack, Schnuck (as it’s called in Germany) was used to settle the dispute.
