Classy stuff from Valencia, who chose to show their support for the victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan by having their shirt names etched in Japanese for their La Liga tie against Sevilla at the weekend…

It’s perhaps worth mentioning that several other clubs around the world also payed their respects to Japan (other than the thousands of minute’s silences that were observed), with Corinthians also going down the ‘Japanese shirt names’ route and Marseille unveiling a huge ‘rising sun’ flag in the terraces amongst others.
