VIDEO: Ex-Red Bulls defender Jan Gunnar Solli got booked for hiding the ball under his shirt | SIDELINE

Former New York Red Bulls defender Jan Gunnar Solli tried to be a little too cheeky in the final minutes of his Hammarby side's 5-0 victory over Degerfors IF earlier this week.

Don't believe us? Check out the above video of Solli hiding/trapping the ball underneath his jersey with the game still going on around him.

There's just one problem doing that: you're not actually allowed to do that in a real game.

No, Jan, really, we were as surprised as you to find out, but you're playing in a real game. See those people in the crowd? They're not there to watch you and your teammates train. So you really can't do that.

So here, have a yellow card for your troubles being a big silly head, Jan.
