Real Madrid’s new signing did some very bad keepy-ups at his unveiling
This is every footballer’s nightmare.
“Welcome to the club, son. Now, just to make everything official we’ll just need a few keepy-ups from you.”
It’s at this point that we can only imagine Real Madrid’s new signing Theo Hernandez began to sweat a little – the wing-back was being presented at the Bernabeu when he attempted the now obligatory skill test in front of the fans.
Most players keep it simple, a few low keepy-ups before catching the ball and waving at the crowd. Things didn’t go so smoothly for Theo.

The 19-year-old French wing-back has joined Real Madrid from Atletico Madrid, but hilariously lost control of the ball when presented to the fans.
Let’s be fair to him though – here’s a rather more serene picture of the player having a go at a header. Much better.
Unsurprisingly, the footage didn’t make the final Real Madrid video.
Football clubs these days, eh? No sense of humour.
