Fabio Carvalho brutally trolled Mason Mount during a blind ranking challenge posted on Hull City’s Tik Tok.
The attacking midfielder, who is currently on loan at the Liverpool Tigers, was seen in the video playing a match that forced him to order several footballers from the past and present.
Carvalho could not see which player would come next but had to order the players from one to ten. The list included several legends from years gone by, including former Barcelona striker Samuel Eto’o and former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
Carvalho was first introduced to Man United star Aaron Wan-Bissaka and placed tenth in his order, before qualifying Atletico Madrid and French World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann in eighth place .
I would place Raphael Varane in ninth place before naming Marc-André Ter Stegen in seventh place. Thiago Silva, Fábregas and Eto’o would be fifth, fourth and third in their classification, leaving two places to cover.

Mount has had a difficult start to his life at Man United following his £60million move in the summer.

He would then be introduced to the legendary German goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, placing him in second place, and later Mason Mount would take first place.
Carvalho paused for a moment as the Man United midfield icon was added to the top spot, before laughing and walking away before the video ended.
Hull City captioned the Tik Tok: “I don’t think Fabio’s plan worked” before adding a “smiley face” emoji.
Mount arrived at Old Trafford last summer in a £60million move from Chelsea, ending an 18-year stay at the west London club, having joined the club’s youth academy when he was just six years old.
But he has had a slow start to life at United, plagued by injuries so far this season.
He missed several games early in the season before suffering a calf injury that kept him out of action since November.
It’s still unclear when it will be available to play again, with Manchester Evening News reported earlier this week that he had suffered a new setback in his recovery.
When available for selection, Mount started just four of the eight Premier League games he played for United and failed to find the back of the net.
Last week, Erik ten Hag expressed his condolences to Mount, stating that the midfielder would not return quickly from injury.
The midfielder laughed when he was forced to put Mount at the top of his list.
Carvalho joined Hull on loan from Liverpool in January and has made three appearances for the Championship side since his arrival.
The England international has been ruled out for much of the 2023-24 season due to various injuries
Erik Ten Hag expressed his condolences to the 25-year-old and hoped he could find a way back into his starting eleven.
“I was having problems since the second game of the season,” Ten Hag said. “He came back for a while and then suffered another injury, so of course that’s not great.”
“That’s very frustrating for him and I really feel for him. I really want to be there for him because he had very high expectations and so did I.
“I’m sure he is a very good player for us. But, first of all, the important thing now is that we have to do it very safely so that he is fit. Safe in the process, step by step, don’t force it and then “Hopefully at the end of the season he can stay fit and work his way into the team, or at least play a role in his team.”
The Dutchman was also asked if he expects the midfielder to play for United again before the end of the season, to which Ten Hag replied: “Absolutely, I hope he comes back.”
