In the same way the Cristiano Ronaldo once sought to document the shredding his ankles took during a game against Dinamo Zagreb a couple of years back, Chelsea winger Eden Hazard posted a photo of his ripped socks and ragged, blooded ankles to his official Instagram account following Tuesday night’s win over Galatasaray…
Ronaldo blamed the battering he took from the Zagreb players on jealousy, claiming at the time: “I think it’s because I’m rich, handsome and a great player. They envy me – there’s no other explanation.”
Hazard was a little less self-involved, adding a caption to the image which merely thanked his family for the thick skin he’s inherited from them.
