As most club fans know all too well, you can sing the player’s name on the terraces for a week and see how things go.
JUMP K: Villarreal needs a yellow submarine.
Valencia supporter Joshua Munoz found out not long ago when his favorite player, Jeffrey Condogbia, was suddenly sold for just 10 million euros outside the transfer window to La Liga rivals Athletic Madrid.
As if it wasn’t enough to lose the first team for a relatively miserable amount of money, the Los Che Munoz fan paid dearly for a huge tattoo of Condoggia on his thigh.
Condoggia first arrived in Mestala in the summer of 2017 and Muñoz decided to have a tattoo put on the eve of the big match between Valencia and Barcelona in the final of the Copa del Rey 2019. He even had the opportunity to show the man himself an indelible portrait.
But despite the fact that the condoms are moving to new pastures, Muñoz announced that the cartridge is not going anywhere.
It [the tattoo] will remain as it is, he courageously told reporters. I thought it was a good idea at the time. I have no regrets.
Para siempre grabado en su piel…
@Geo_Kondogbia, emocionado y sorprendido al ver el tatuaje más valencianista de Joshua
Para siempre en su pierna la garra, fuerza y SENTIMENT de Kondo

Valencia defeated Barca 2-1 in the final, while Condombia jumped from the bench at the hour mark and helped Lionel Messi & Co. to strengthen. At least Munyo’s tattoo will always remind us of better times for Los Che.
Let’s be honest: He is not the only fan who over the years has invested in questionable body art in football.
Here are Chelsea legends John Terry and Frank Lampard, who share prime property on the Port Peninsula from one of the most ardent defenders.

In the summer of 2017, a grumpy Arsenal fan lost a bet on social networks when the club signed a contract with Alexander Lacazette from Lyon …

This Seattle Sounders fan celebrated Clint Dempsey’s arrival at the 2013 club with his picture behind his ear. Although he may want his money back.

There are a few notes for Beckham, first for himself, after he misspelled his wife’s name in 2000. Yeah, you can imagine how it happened in the Beckham family after he decided to become Hindi but had a Victoria tattoo on his arm. Instead of Victoria, of course.
Beckham fans are also known to make strange mistakes, and one of them manages to pass on some of his surnames.
This Brazilian fan asked for Neimar’s tattoo. Who or what kind of artist ended up painting on his skin is well worth discussing.

He is a defender and has scored more than 100 goals for Real Madrid, so the place that Ramos is rightly celebrating is clearly on the back of his calf.

One of the fans of Man United went there and got a nice tribute to Gary Neville, which unfortunately looks more like a scene with Chestberster of the Aliens.

Everton clearly has something to do with fans spending their money on really ridiculous tattoos – and it’s probably Echo Falls’ pink wine. The fan gave James a bottle of rose – through the window of the player’s car – after winning 5-2 points from West Brom in Goodison Park in September. The Colombian accepted his prize and the supporter decided to make sure it was something he could never forget.

We suspect that several loyal Man City fans decided to immortalize the famous title of Agüero against QPR in the form of a tattoo, but only one of them decided that the full transcript of Martin Tyler’s comment on heaven would remain on his arm forever.

This intrepid city fan decided to have the names of three club legends painted on his chest: Robinho, Sean Gauther and Poop. One problem was that Kaka had never signed a contract with the city, and in 2009 he was the target of a failed transfer proposal.

A tattoo of Totti in all its glory would be a perfectly understandable addition to the personal portfolio of every gypsy worshipper, but a tattoo of the selfish hero Hyalorossi? It’s crazy.

This huge flamengo tattoo required 32 sessions in 90 hours, not to mention the fact that it probably cost as much as a modest family car.

Proof that a football tattoo with a full body is not always as great as it seems – especially when it comes to stripes.

For obvious reasons, gymnastics enthusiasts were happy to meet a living legend as head coach of their team in 2019.
One of the fans even had an Argentine icon tattooed directly on his bald skull – only to see Maradona leave in less than three months after only eight games.

Villarreal needs the yellow submarine
Villarreal owed their staff to their hard work after miraculously securing a Europe League against Tel Aviv McCabi.
A few hours before departure, the Estadio de la Ceramica was hit by a violent storm, with heavy rainfall and strong winds.
In fact, the game had to be postponed for an hour because the field soon turned into an ocean. Looks like they got the nickname Yellow Submarine for a reason.

It is estimated that 60 litres per square metre fell on the grass when the playing surface was so messed up that at some point it had a hypnotic storm effect.
Villarreal won 4-0 thanks to goals from Carlos Bucky (2), Alex Baena and Fernando Nino, although the club had no doubt who were the real heroes of the evening.
