Real Madrid's Theo Hernandez fails at keep-ups in front of new fans

When the deal went through last week, Theo Hernandez became the first player to directly cross the divide between Atletico and Real Madrid for 17 years.

The young defender was unveiled in front of several thousand fans at the Bernabeu after finalising his £20 million transfer and, as is customary, was asked to perform a few keepy-uppies to keep people entertained.

However, the resulting flurry of clumsy juggles with the ball will hardly have impressed Hernandez's famously demanding new fan base.

Indeed, the 19-year-old managed just six ungainly kick-ups before giving up.

Who knows, maybe the nerves got to him?

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
