Real Madrid star Pepe suffered a badly gashed temple while heading the ball during a Champions League clash with Copenhagen.
The play itself looks pretty innocent at first, but then Pepe grabs the right side of his face. A second look shows us that he actually slammed his head onto his opponent while going for the ball.
Injuries like this can be treated in several ways – but we did not expect Pepe to go with the old “get stapled up and get back out there” option.
Who said futbol players were pretty boys?
