Swansea City star Renato Sanches passes to advertising board instead of team-mate for hilarious reason

So much was promised of Renato Sanches after the Portugal midfielder won the 2016 Golden Boy award.

The then-teenager helped guide Portgual to a famous Euro 2016 title and secured a big money move from Benfica to Bayern Munich.

But Sanches struggled during his first season in the Bundesliga, making just 25 appearances in all competitions – the majority coming from the bench.

The Portugal starlet was subsequently loaned out – and to a destination that surprised pretty much everyone: Swansea City.

Paul Lambert can’t believe it

By loaning the 20-year-old to a lesser team in a higher tier, Bayern were hoping Sanches would rediscover his best form.

Alas, the midfield maestro has continued to struggle. Sanches was even hooked at half-time during Swansea’s 0-0 draw with Bournemouth on Saturday.

And things appeared to hit rock bottom for the lad during the Swans’ 1-0 defeat to Chelsea on Wednesday night.

Thinking he had spotted a team-mate out of the corner of his eye, Sanches passed the ball directly to his target.

The only problem was, the target in question turned out to be a red Carabao logo – the same colour as Swansea’s shirts – located on the sponsorship hoarding.

Footage of the moment has circulated on Twitter and received plenty of attention…
