Valencia defender Adil Rami angers fans after injuring himself dancing to Gangnam Style

Posted by Chris Wright

Here's one to add to the pantheon of fantastically dumb footballing injuries; alongside classics such as Ever Banega parking his car on himself, Kirk Broadfoot exploding a poached egg into his own face and former Norway international Svein Grondalen being headbutted into a ditch by a rogue moose while taking in an early morning jog.

It has come to light that Valencia centre-half Adil Rami missed last Saturday's 3-3 draw against Espanyol after the Frenchman aggravated and subsequently infected a bad bout of blisters on his foot while dancing around on stage to "Gangnam Style".

Rami received permission from Valencia to travel back to former club Lille and make an appearance at a charity concert which was being held to benefit the cash-stricken French club.

The 27-year-old defender was then fatefully coerced into busting a few choice moves to Psy's nauseatingly omnipresent, Youtube-facilitated dance hit...

Unfortunately for Rami, he was nursing a foot-full of blisters at the time, all of which exploded as his threw his shapes. The sores then became infected, thus leaving him unable to train on his return to Spain and subsequently ruling him out of the Espanyol game the following weekend.

This, rather understandably, didn't go down overly well with the Los Che faithful, who took to the internet en mass to demand that Rami donate back the salary he earned while out of action thanks to his gangrenous, Gangnam Style-related boo boo.

You couldn't make it up!
