Asensio missed UCL clash with leg shaving ‘injury’

Whoever said modern footballers were a bunch of overpaid primadonnas?

Well, they may just be right after it was revealed why Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio missed his team’s Champions League tie against Apoel Tel Aviv on Wednesday night.

The official reason given for the absence of the talented attacking midfielder was an infected pimple on his leg prevented him from pulling up his socks.

It gets worse. Asensio got the pustular pimple while shaving his legs!

News of this seriously debilitating injury got the kind of twitter treatment you would expect from footy fans around the globe.

Other fans tried to put it in perspective.

Ermm, no!
