Real Madrid have insured C-Ron’s tanned legs for €100m. And if this is the sort of treatment he gets in a pre-season friendly, you have to say it’s a very wise move indeed.
The perpetrator of this horror tackle was Juventus’s Zdenek Grygera, who gave the appearance of a man who wanted to follow in the studmarks of Andoni Goikoetxea…

Goikoetxea is still remembered throughout football as the man who almost ended Diego Maradona’s career. Looks like Grygera wanted to go down in the history books as the man who banjaxed the £80m man. However, C-Ron has been given the all clear by Real’s medical staff. Phew.
