Greek centre-back, Kostas Manolas will never forget his time in the United Arab Emirates as he had to take some photos with a chained lion.

In the viral video, the 31-year immediately jumped in fright after the chained lion snarled at him.
The Sharjah FC collaborators who were there asked him to calm down and continue with the photos.
