7ft 6 basketball star Mamadou N’Diaye DWARFS Erling Haaland in a snap shared from behind the scenes after Man City’s 3-1 victory against West Ham – not to mention 5ft 8 Bernardo Silva!
Basketball sensation Mamadou N’Diaye dwarfed 6ft 4 inch Erling Haaland when he posed with the striking superstar after Manchester City’s match against West Ham on Saturday.
The former UC Irvine player stands at a towering 7ft 6 inches and puts Haaland and his teammates in the shade during his trip to the London Stadium.
Haaland is among the tallest players in the Premier League and coupling his imposing presence with ferocious speed played a vital role in his record-smashing goalscoring form for Man City last season.
But the Norway international looked minute compared to the Senegalese baller, who also dwarfed his 6ft two-inch team-mate Ederson.
But the most eye-catching presence in the photograph was Bernardo Silva: standing at 5ft 8 inches, the Portuguese midfielder is nearly two feet shorter than N’Diaye.
All four men posed with beaming smiles as the Man City players reveled in their 3-1 comeback win against the Hammers on the road, and N’Diaye enjoyed his vacation in London.
N’Diaye also met with Manuel Akanji, picking up the player’s match shirt, before taking a tour of the stadium and practicing keeps-ups on the West Ham badge.
The sportsman also shared pictures from his sightseeing around the British capital as he took in central London and various museums.
N’Diaye cheekily posed next to a red telephone box, the clever angles of the camera making it seem as if the player was almost as tall as the London street icon.
In reality, London telephone boxes stand at 8ft 3 inches.
