An article in Manchester United’s official magazine has revealed one of their player’s was left with a nasty burn on their tackle from hair removal cream. The very Red Devil was not named in the story, which appeared in the column of former player and current academy director Brian McClair.
He wrote that the player involved lost a layer of skin in some very sensitive places just 24 hours before a big match. He added: “This made changing the next day a bit awkward.”
United sources told The Sun that the incident did not involve a current first-team player, meaning Cristiano Ronaldo is odds on favourite to have been the man who felt the burn.
